Topographic Types Influence on the Landslide Movement
According to the 95 landslides of field investigation and literatures, the topographic types of landslide movement were divided into river, ladder and linearity. Based on the power-law relationship between the volume and equivalent friction coefficient of non-block landslides, the topographic influence coefficients were studied which were influenced by the landslide volumes and occurrence mechanisms. Because of different volumes of seismic landslides and rainfall landslides, the influence coefficients of topography were significant different. It indicated that the disaster-causing mechanism of landslides not only closely related with the landslide volume, but also were controlled by topographic types and occurrence mechanisms.
