Title Avalanche Forces and the Protection of Objects
Subject Avalanches; Snow mechanics
Description This contribution is addressed primarily to the practical man who comes into contact with the problems of avalanche effects on structures in the course of his professional work in the mountains. An attempt is made to estimate avalanche forces by assembling a number of relatively simple formulas. But a certain experience and familiarity with snow and avalanches are still assumed for an intelligent treatment of the subject.
