Slopes in open pit mines must be considered as geotechnical structures. Therefore their design and implementation must be conducted with all consideration including technical, economical, environmental and safety issues. But these structures are above all ...

Three-dimensional numerical models are needed to investigate the role of nonvertical strike-slip fault segments on the deformation within restraining bends. Numerical models simulate geologic deformation of two alternative three-dimensional present-day configurations ...

Evidence indicates that the vertical component of ground motion is more significant than previously thought, especially for near fault events. However, many design codes do not reflect the importance of the vertical component of ground motion. Therefore, ...
