28-m Flume Facility
Kadoorie Center, Hong Kong SAR
The 28-m long flume facility with a 2 m width, 20° inclination and 10 m3 of storage volume, is currently used for physical modelling. Multiple debris flow tests have been conducted to study impact mechanisms of debris flow and evaluate performance of different countermeasures against debris flow hazards
172-m Flume Facility
A world-class 172-m long flume is under development at Kunming, China, which is a collaborative effort between HKUST and IMHE. The flume is 6 m in width, inclined at 30° and can model debris flow volumes up to 500 m3.
Ground Receiving Station of Remote Sensing Satellite CUHK
Hong Kong SAR
The CUHK satellite receiving station, with a 7.5 m antenna and the integral system of data receiving, recording, archiving and processing, is the first satellite receiving station in South China. The station is currently used for high-resolution SAR image collection, based on which the effective monitoring of landslides, and associated geo-hazards will be facilitated via multitemporal InSAR technique.
AR/VR-Ready Teaching Laboratory
Hong Kong SAR
The AR/VR-Ready laboratory at HKUST is being utilized for developing and providing an immersive learning experience using AR/VR. This method of teaching aims to provide the user with an enhanced experience on landslide events, site visits, disaster response and many more. An online MOOC course platform, HKMOOC, is developed to further nurture the interested parties via e-learning.
