Short summary
The paper focuses on a new and practical way to model an avalanche for a 3D-numerical simulation with the software FLOW-3D. The main goal is to simulate the induced impulse wave in a reservoir in order to quantify the amount of overtopping water. A generalised geometry is used to validate the concept with the help of existing simplified formulas for this paper.
