Abstract
When a landslide or a debris-flow falls in a water body, a big wave, known as impulse wave or landslide tsunami wave, can be generated. That phenomenon can be highly destructive and unlikely predicted, involving dams and shorelines. Disastrous past events have been extensively analyzed and experimental studies have been carried out by different authors, but do not fully account for the description of the phenomenon. In the present study we introduce a new experimental set up installed in the flu...
