Some of the most destructive types of water related disasters are addressed in 20 papers on debris flow modeling, monitoring and measuring, risk assessment, sediment transport and debris flow, protective barriers, and landslide phenomena. Among specific topics are the field investigation and finite element modeling of a progressive debris slide in the Indian Himalayas, two methods for measuring the internal velocity of debris flows in the laboratory, modeling soil erosion and sediment transport under different land management options in a southern Italy watershed, the influence of storm-based events on the suspended sediment flux in a small scale river catchment in Ireland, and a framework of human reliability analysis in a geotechnical risk assessment for hillside development. Only the authors are indexed. The US office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics.
