ANALYSIS OF RAINFALL-INDUCED DEBRIS FLOWS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Anderson and Sitar, published in this journal (Volume 121, Number 7, July 1995), is presented. Discusser Day presents four issues that are important to the analysis of rainfall-induced debris flows: 1) selection of shear strength parameters; 2) effect of roots on the initiation of drained slope failure; 3) distinction between drained and undrained values of residual strength; and 4) effect of permeability on debris flow mobilization. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
