Short summary
We present a physical model for the simulation of dense snow avalanches and other gravitational mass flows. The model is solved with OpenFOAM, a popular open-source toolkit for the numerical solution of partial differential equations. The solver has a modular design and is easy to extend. Therefore, it represents an ideal platform for implementing and testing new model approaches.
