Depth-Averaged Modelling Equations for Single-Phase Material Flows

Ioana Luca, Yih Chin Tai, Chih Yu Kuo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter we deduce depth-averaged model equations for thin mass flows down arbitrary topographies, be they stationary or active, when the flowing material is assumed a single-phase (or one-component) continuum body.
