Rockfall is a rapid and rather spontaneous natural hazard. It is a natural process that poses problems in many areas downslope from rocky outcrops throughout the world. To predict the potential rockfall threat, it is not only required to estimate the stopping ...
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 ...
Rockfall propagation areas can be determined using a simple geometric rule known as shadow angle or energy line method based on a simple Coulomb frictional model implemented in the CONEFALL computer program. Runout zones are estimated from a digital terrain ...
CONSIDERATIONS ON SWISS METHODOLOGIES FOR ROCK FALL HAZARD MAPPING BASED ON TRAJECTORY MODELLING (2009)
Rock fall hazard assessment and hazard mapping are essential for the risk management of vulnerable areas. This paper analyses some issues concerning fragmental rock fall hazard mapping methodologies.
After a summary of the main conclusions drawn from a small-scale study, the paper focuses on half-scale experiments, describing first the testing device and the data processing and analysing then the influence of several impact parameters in order to study ...
AN ATTEMPT TO REFINE ROCKFALL HAZARD ZONING BASED ON THE KINETIC ENERGY, FREQUENCY AND FRAGMENTATION DEGREE (2005)
In this paper, is explored the effect of slope geometry and rockfall frequency on the rockfall hazard zoning.
<p>After the presentation of the tools used to compute these areas, the paper focuses on two methods developed for a preliminary hazard mapping, one at regional scale and the other at local scale.</p>
In this chapter an overview of rockfall types and stabilization measures are presented.
