Abstract

Herein the discussion is focused on 2 aspects of the conclusion. It is believed that dam overtopping was the primary cause of the Dadu river landslide dam failure, although aftershocks may have further weakened the embankment. Using physically based equations supported by recent physical model data, the maximum outflow may be estimated to be about 6000 m3/s
