Abstract
Rockfalls are frequent natural processes in mountain regions with the potential to produce damage. The quantitative risk analysis (QRA) is an approach increasingly used to assess risk and evaluate the performance of mitigation measures. In case of the fragmentation of the falling rock mass, some of the hypothesis taken in the QRA estimation for rockfalls have to be modified since a single block or rock mass can produce several fragments thus modifying the runout probability, the impact energies ...
