A 58 page, Forest Service publication Avalanche Dynamics : Engineering Applications for Land Use Planning for the HP-65 programmabale calculator.

Voellmy's (1955) avalanche dynamics equations are reviewed and combined with more recent findings of other workers. Equations are used to estimate flow heights, velocities, specific thrust pressure, maximum specific weight of avalanche debris, and runout distance for 12 avalanche case studies from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Suggestions are made for using this engineering approach for avalanche zoning and land use planning.

Keywords: Avalanche dynamics, avalanche zoning, land use planning
