NEWTONIAN FLUID MECHANICS TREATMENT OF DEBRIS FLOW AND AVALANCHES. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Hunt, published in this journal (Volume 120, Number 12, December 1994), is presented. The discussers support the author's view of the treatment of debris flows as viscous laminar flows, agreeing that mud flows, debris flows, and avalanches may be considered in regimes with predominant viscous stresses, as Newtonian flows. They further remark that Hunt's techniques offer useful improvements for the numerical treatment of the problem under examination. Discussion is followed by closure from the author.
