dc.description.abstractDense urban development on a hilly terrain, coupled with intense seasonal rainfall and heterogeneous weathered profiles, gives rise to acute debris flow problems in Hong Kong. The Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) of the Hong Kong SAR Government has launched a holistic R&D programme and collaborated with various tertiary institutes and professional bodies to support the development of a comprehensive technical framework for managing landslide risk and designing debris flow mitigation measures. The scope of the technical development work includes compilation of landslide inventories, field studies of debris flows, development and calibration of tools for landslide runout modelling, back analysis of notable debris flows, physical and numerical modelling of the interaction of debris flow and mitigation measures, formulation of a technical framework for evaluating debris flow hazards, and development of pragmatic mitigation strategies and design methodologies for debris flow countermeasures. The work has advanced the technical understanding of debris flow hazards and transformed the natural terrain landslide risk management practice in Hong Kong. New analytical tools and improved design methodologies are being applied in routine geotechnical engineering practice.
