This contribution provides an overview of previous and current research on the main topics related to rockfall.
Rockfall is an extremely rapid process involving long travel distances. Due to these features, when an event occurs, the ability to take evasive action is practically zero and, thus, the risk of injury or loss of life is high. Damage to buildings and infrastructure ...
USING GEOMATICS AND AIRBORNE LASER SCANNING FOR ROKFALL RISK ZONING: A CASE STUDY IN THE FRENCH ALPS (2010)
In France, Risk Prevention Plans (PPR) are standard documents that determine risk areas and building authorisations for ten-year periods. This paper is about the PPR revision of the town of Veyrier-du-Lac (France), where is implemented a new methodology based ...
In this paper, a general formulation using a Taylor series expansion is proposed for the quantification of the relative importance of the different processes that explain the variability of the reflected velocity vector after bouncing.
The accuracy of rockfall trajectory simulations depends to a large extent on the calculation of the rebound of falling boulders on different parts of a slope where rockfalls could occur. The models commonly used for rebound calculation are based on restitution ...
