Thanks to the blasting of a rock face above route 308 near Hindelang (Allgäu, Bavaria, Germany), I had the opportunity of taking video films of the resulting rockfalls (in total 70,000 cbm). The video films were taken by R.Lorenz of the Inst. of Alpine Natural Hazards and Forest Engineering (University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences). The purpose of my research is finding out more about rockfall phenomena, and improving their quantitative description by means of computer models (such as the program of GEOTEST (CH)).
The rock works were done by Gasser Felstechnik.
My complete thesis is available as an Adobe Acrobat document.>
