Record #80286:

A test of the avalanche runout equations developed by the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute / M. Martinelli, Jr.

Title: A test of the avalanche runout equations developed by the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute / M. Martinelli, Jr.
Author(s): Martinelli, M.,
Date: 1986.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1986.), Vol. 13(1) (1986)
Abstract: Norwegian equations tested against sample of North American and Swiss avalanches. Average gradient was predicted within ±2° for 70% of cases. Runout distances were generally underestimated for paths with unique longitudinal profile. Develops new equation that can handle both normal and troublesome profiles.
Notes:

Cold Regions Science and Technology. Vol. 13(1) :19-33 (1986).

Keywords: 551.578.48 -- Avalanches.
551.578.483 -- Avalanches, forecasting.
E10 -- Glaciology: snow and avalanches.
