    Abstract: Numerical simulation analysis and limit equilibrium methods are usually used in landslide stability analysis. In order to study the differences of calculation theory and results, this paper takes Huangmuya landslide as a case study. The field geological survey and exploration are used to determine the form and property of the landslide. The deforma... Show More

    Abstract: Performance assessment of irrigation system is important to conserve the scarce resource of water through improving performance of existing irrigation schemes. However, there was no study in the past on performance assessment of Kuraz Irrigation Scheme. Thus, this study was to evaluate the hydraulic performance of the irrigation scheme using hydrau...
