(HP-65) Avalanche Dynamics
An extract from AVALANCHE DYNAMICS: Engineering Applications for Land Use Planning, USDA Forest Service, Research Paper (RM-183), FEB 1977 {60 pgs.}

… avalanche dymamics equations are reviewed and combined with more recent findings … 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 … Suggestions are made for using this engineering approach for avalanche zoning and land use planning.
