Bienvenue sur la plate-forme Innovation et Territoires de Montagne

Le LabEx ITEM est un réseau d'acteurs des territoires et de chercheurs issus des établissements de recherche d’Isère et de Savoie. Sa vocation est d’apporter aux territoires de montagne les capacités d’analyse et d’expertise qu’appellent les différentes formes de changement auxquelles ils sont confrontés.

Runnel development on granitic boulders on the foothills of Mount Kinabalu (Pinosuk Gravel Formation, Sabah, N Borneo)

Abstract Runnels are characteristic erosional features on karstified soluble rocks and can occasionally develop on less soluble rocks (i.e. sandstones and granites) but are poorly reported in Malaysia. This research summarizes boul...

Numerical simulation for different motion forms of sliding soil along slope with PFC3D

Abstract The motion forms (deformation) of the sliding soil along the slope include inviscid particle flow, viscous particle flow, and mass sliding. The motion forms were mainly influenced by the mechanical properties of the viscou...
