Sort By:   

  Experiment-1: Dynamic Rock-Slope Stability during Sliding Failure
Dates: September 12, 2011 - September 23, 2011
Description: Two complimentary slopes were placed onto a fixed ramp inside of a rigid container. Each slope presented a distinct pattern of discontinuity formations. Slope 1 represented a blocky composition with two discontinuity sets (one at 20 deg. and one at...

  Experiment-2: Dynamic Rock-Slope Stability during Sliding Failure - Phase 2
Dates: October 17, 2012 - October 23, 2012
Description: This experiment was split into five series of tests, where four of the test series investigated sliding failures and the fifth series looked into the toppling failure mechanism of single blocks. The first four series of tests consisted of three unique...

  Experiment-3: Dynamic Rock-Slope Stability during Rotational Failure
Dates: May 03, 2013 - May 17, 2013
Description: This experiment was conducted to investigate the response of rotating rock elements during seismic activity. Block geometries were selected to seat into a dual slope base, i.e. the sliding base contacted a back support at a specified angle. The block...
