Study on the Disaster Mitigation Strategies for Landslide Dams (3/3)

This project aims to develop an analytical approach for study the stability of landslide dams, and propose the disaster mitigation strategies for the dams. The impact of a landslide dam failure on the downstream of a river will also be investigated. This study will be finished in three years. The project of the lastest year (this year) will focus on the case studies of Tsao-lin landslide dam and of Chiufengershan landslide dam, and bring up some flow chart and sugget useful methods and measurements of investigation ,construction, and maintenance when landslide dam occurs according to internal and external experiences.
