A stress-wave model is used to describe snow-slab failure under dynamic loading conditions. This model indicates that dilational waves and shear waves can interact with a thin, weak bedding layer underlying a snow slab causing dilatational and shear stresses in the layer. The magnitude and distribution of stresses in the layer are shown to depend strongly on the height of the loading source above the bedding plane, the difference in impedance between the slab and the loading source, thedoi:10.1017/s0022143000010789 fatcat:mys4v4x3nndkjikpulaqxfopvy
