The paper deals with the assessment of the rockfall risk for a road stretch, in southern Italy, affected by high traffic intensity. Three qualitative rockfall risk rating systems (QRSs) which use an exponential scoring with a base of 3 were employed, and then ...

Unlike fragmental rockfall runout assessments, there are only few robust methods to quantify rock-massfailure susceptibilities at regional scale. A detailed slope angle analysis of recent Digital Elevation Models (DEM) canbe used to detect potential rockfall ...

<p>The stability analysis of rock slopes has been a challenging task for engineers <br />because the rock mass constituting the slope often has discontinuities in various <br />forms, resulting in different types of slope failures. The plane failure is one ...

In this paper is evaluated both the structurally-controlled failure susceptibility of the fractured Cretaceous chalk rocks and the topographically-controlled shallow landslide susceptibility of the overlying glacial sediments for the Jasmund cliff area on ...

Excavated slopes in open pit coal mines are designed to be as steep as possible consistent with stability and safety requirements. Slope failures occur for many reasons, including oversteepening. This paper is concerned with slope design and excavation experience ...

OpenRisk, an open cast risk rating system, takes into account relative differences in the importance of hazards, as experienced on each mine as a result of different combinations of geotechnical factors and mining conditions. The system is based on critical ...

This paper describes mining industry funded research that is being undertaken to address the critical gaps and uncertainties in our knowledge so that we can develop new approaches and create more effective ways for predicting the reliability of rock slopes ...

Catastrophic rock slope failures have caused destructive tsunamis in Norwegian fjords. At the Åknes rock slope the tsunami generating potential is large due to the potential large volume involved in a possible catastrophic failure. Widening of the upper crack ...
