Understanding and predicting snow behavior

1 Mar 2017, PhysOrg

Engineers from the University of Luxembourg are working to better analyse the mechanical properties of snow. The project aims to develop a computer model that can help solving typical snow-related engineering problems. The model could be used to anticipate avalanches or to determine the load on buildings caused by snow by predicting the behaviour of snow.
