Record #125319:

Comparison of analytical snow pressure models / David M. McClung.

Title: Comparison of analytical snow pressure models / David M. McClung.
Author(s): McClung, David M.
Date: 1993.
In: Canadian Geotechnical Journal. (1993.), Vol. 30(6) (1993)
Abstract: Two analytical models for snow creep and glide forces on structures in deep snow are compared theoretically and checked against field data. Results show that formulations in Swiss guidelines for avalanche defence are incompatible with continuum mechanical model based on linear creep and glide constitutive equations. Also, formulation of Swiss guidelines neglect pressure from component of body force in slope-normal direction, which is unnecessary simplification.
