The “fluid-structure” interaction when granular media travelling at high velocities impinge on structures will be discussed. Such interactions typically occur in landmine explosions, landslides and avalanches and involve the transfer of momentum from the granular media to the structure. The phenomena involved are investigated via coupled discrete-continuum calculations and laboratory-scale model experiments.
