Abstract
A Rockfall is a mass instability process frequently observed in road cuts, open pit mines and quarries, steep slopes and cliffs. It is frequently observed that the detached rock mass becomes fragmented when it impacts with the slope surface. The consideration of the fragmentation of the rockfall mass is critical for the calculation of block’s trajectories and their impact energies, to further assess their potential to cause damage and design adequate preventive structures. We present here the ...
