Description: Two kinds of shearing stress meters (type A and type B) were set on the channel bottom in the Arimura River and the Mochiki River on Mt. Sakurajima. Volcanic mud flows take place there about 100 times a year. The results of the surveys demonstrated that the actual shearing force of a volcanic mud flow on Mt. Sakurajima was from 0.46 to 2.50 kgf/cm2. The actual impact force caused by collisions of big stones, which were contained in a mud flow, with the channel bottom was calculated theoretically at about 15 times greater than the dead loads of the stones. The collision of stones in a mud flow caused great abrasion of concrete.
