This work is concerned with the flow of a viscous
plastic fluid. We choose a model of Bingham type
taking into account inhomogeneous yield limit of the
fluid, which is well-adapted in the description of
landslides. After setting the general
threedimensional problem, the blocking property is
introduced. We then focus on necessary and
sufficient conditions such that blocking of the fluid
occurs.
The anti-plane flow in
twodimensional and
onedimensional cases is considered.
A variational formulation in terms of stresses is
deduced. More fine properties dealing with local
stagnant regions as well as local regions where the
fluid behaves like a rigid body are obtained in
dimension one.
