Abstract

A new model called Multiplex Acceleration Model (MAM) is presented for understanding the mechanism of long run-out distance of an earthquake induced landslide. The collision behavior between a falling stone and the slope is analyzed by both theoretical and numerical methods. The effect of earthquake on the run-out distance is investigated by shaking table tests. The landslide induced by the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake in Donghekou is simulated by numerical method DDA.
