Abstract

The Gorkha earthquake of April 25, 2015 has caused many landslides along the Trishuli River in the Rasuwa District. A numerical approach has been taken to assess the remaining risk of landslides. The debris mass movements are described in simulations with only three parameters, namely, the critical angle if, Gauckler- Manning roughness coefficient n, and angle of repose id. The optimum set of these three parameters, obtained through a batch of numerical simulations to minimize the prediction error, was then used to identify locations of unstable colluvium deposits remaining along gullies on steep valley walls of the Trishuli River.
