Numerical modelling of the Coll de Pal snow avalanche with Iber

The snow avalanche of Coll de Pall (February 10th, 2018) mobilized around of 2,431m3, travelled around 400m and cumulated 2.5m on a road. Recognition campaigns revealed that the avalanche may be classified as a dry, dense flow with some cohesion. The event was simulated with Iber, a 2D-SWE-based numerical tool that implements an ad hoc numerical scheme for the friction terms. The model achieved good results, stable numerical solutions and the flow stops without considering additional criteria.
