Multi-Physics Study of Hydro-Induced Geohazard: Mechanism, Modelling, Control and Prevention

With global warming, the world faces unprecedented challenges. The intensifying interactions among the hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere, driven by climate change, have exacerbated the influence of hydrodynamic geological disasters. These phenomena are becoming increasingly severe, posing risks to both natural and human environments. Consequently, there is a pressing need for focused academic research and engineering application to address and mitigate these escalating threats effectively.

Research into hydrodynamic geological hazards is increasingly essential in civil and environmental engineering, particularly due to the severe impacts of atmospheric precipitation and reservoir water level fluctuations that trigger landslides and debris flows. The role of hydrodynamics in significant engineering projects underscores the urgent need for comprehensive studies on the interaction of multi fields and multi scales of mechanics. Such studies are vital for understanding and mitigating these hazards effectively. Advanced research methodologies—including data-driven analytics, physical modeling experiment, and field observation is essential for developing precise and reliable hazard assessment techniques. Furthermore, developing safety evaluation methods for these hazards is crucial, as these methods play a key role in effectively predicting and mitigating potential risks associated with hydrodynamic-induced geological hazards.


Aims and Objective

The main topics for this special issue will include, but are not limited to:

  • Field survey and investigation of typical reservoir landslides and underground engineering hazards.
  • Hydromechanical behavior of geological formations under complex loading conditions.
  • Advanced laboratory testing methods and fundamental mechanisms of geohazards, focusing on key triggering factors and hydro-mechanics effects.
  • Advanced numerical modeling methods, comparing continuum and discrete approaches.
  • Modern techniques in field monitoring, early warning, mitigation, and control of geohazards.

These topics are inspired by discussions and findings from the "2024 International Workshop: Multi-field Mechanics and Engineering Application" and the upcoming "6th International Symposium on Multi-Physics Study of Hydro-Induced Geohazard Mechanism, Modelling, Control and Prevention" to be held in Paris in July. We strongly encourage and warmly welcome contributions that address engineering applications and original research within multi fields and multi scales mechanics, geotechnical engineering, civil engineering, and related areas.
