Forecasting catastrophic events and their strength is of fundamental interests for the whole earth.
The extraordinary intensity and rarity of these phenomena make them difficult to be reproduced in laboratories on an acceptable scale.
The numerical simulation allows to get rid of these constraints by reproducing any kind of event of any intensity at a real scale, and to observe at each wanted point the generated effects.
The cases that can be approached are very various:
- secular floods
- tsunami waves
- slurries and avalanches
- dam breaks
- or any other physical phenomena where the dominant factor is the movement of a liquid or gas mass
For each of these phenomena it is possible to make a forecast, and to verify in details their effects.
