Abstract
Fragmentation is a critical mechanism for the calculation of the trajectories of the blocks and the impact energies, for the assessment of the potential damage and for the design of protec-tive structures, although few rockfall models account for it. In this contribution we present an application of the trajectory simulation tool RockGIS, which explicitly accounts for fragmen-tation, to a recent rockfall event occurred near Vilanova de Banat (Spain). All parameters of the model controlling the k...
