Abstract

The relaxation theory of mudflows arises naturally out of the rate process theory of soil creep without the need for any further major assumptions. The theory adequately explains the main outlines of the behaviour of mudflows. This includes the possibility of catastrophic flows which despite their density behave as free flowing liquids. This is brought about by a predicted decrease in the viscosity with increased shear rate
