Outline of a Simple Model of Mixed Snow Avalanches
MetadataShow full item record
- NGI report 
This Note discusses a quasi-three-dimensional model of mixed snow avalanches that could replace the code MoT-Voellmy in NAKSIN. As a starting point, the two-layer model by Eglit is slightly simplified and extended from a profile line to a general topography in three-dimensional space. Possible modifications of the closures proposed by Eglit are discussed. For rapid development, it is suggested to base the new code either on MoT-Voellmy or possibly on the code development system ExaHyPE.
