The application of Goodman and Bray's limit equilibrium analysis of multi-block toppling failures to these three slopes is demonstrated. At the time of failure, the shear strength of the soil is fully mobilized along the failure plane. Plane failure in rock slopes is relatively a simple mode of failure, however it may involve complex failure mechanism owing to its complex geometry (Yoon et al., 2002), heterogeneity in geology, non-planer potential failure plane, variability in shear-strength along the potential failure plane (Tang et al., 2016), uneven distribution of the water forces (Ahmadi and Eslami, 2011), surcharge (Shukla et al., … Well developed joint planes comprise the other part of the failure … Der Einfluss der Kohäsion kommt dabei explizit zum Ausdruck, die Einflüsse der Geometrie, des Reibungswinkels und des Sicherheitsfaktors treten in zwei Faktoren zusammengefasst in Erscheinung. Summary. The rock is variably weathered, as shown by the brown colours in Figures 1 and 2. Slope stability analysis is a static or dynamic, analytical or empirical method to evaluate the stability of earth and rock-fill dams, embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and rock. 27 3.2 Anchored rock … volume 13, pages105–111(1995)Cite this article. The quantitative determination of the stability of slopes is necessary in a number of engineering activities, such as: (a) the design of earth dams and embankments, (b) the analysis of stability of natural slopes, (c) analysis of the stability of excavated slopes, (d) analysis of deepseated failure of foundations and retaining walls. REFERENCES Subscription will auto renew annually. Toppling failure has not been considered, under which circumstances the simple resolution of forces together with the Coulomb failure hypothesis on the sliding plane are sufficient to arrive at a solution of the problem. Sharma, S., Raghuvanshi, T.K. 16th U.S. Rock Slope Failure. Dans les deux cas, la formule de dimensionnement permet aussi la réalisation d'une vaste analyse paramétrique pour déterminer la sensibilité de la construction à la variation des paramètres individuels. 9, No. R. Anbalagan. For highly fractured rock, the original HB failure criterion has been modified, but its effect on the stability of rock slopes has not been studied. Slopes lose strength over time through numerous events and certain lithologies lend itself more to specific types of failure. Geotech Geol Eng 13, 105–111 (1995). In this type of failure, the failure plane is predetermined. This investigation may be carried out quickly, without time consuming calculations, even at the site, if a programmable pocket electronic calculator is available. Plane failure is a simple mode of failure in rock s lopes, however due to com plexity in geometry, variability in discontinuity characteristics, uneven distribution of water forces within the slope, Dans le cas du problème plan, on a mis au point une formule fondamentale pour le dimensionnement des ancrages qui doivent retenir une masse rocheuse susceptible de glisser.

Permission to Distribute - American Rock Mechanics Association. A probabilistic analysis will provide you with a safety factor distribution and a probability of failure. The limit equilibrium method is generally utilized in the stability analysis of rock slope with single failure plane. ROCK SLOPES PROCESSES AND RECOMMENDED METHODS FOR ANALYSIS A. K. Alzo'ubi College of Engineering, Abu Dhabi University, UAE ABSTRACT: The stability of rock slopes is of great concern in many engineering projects, for example, road cuts, foundations, retaining walls, and dam excavation Generally, rock slopes susceptible to instability could be divided into two main categories, the … Stability of Finite Slopes with Plane Failure Surface ... • Rapidly moving mass of material (rock or soil) that travels mostly through the air with little or no interaction between moving unit and another. The Monte Carlo simulation method was used to analyze the rock slopes. As shown on Figures 1 and 2, at the right hand side the failure has occurred along a bedding plane. & Anbalagan, R. Plane failure analysis of rock slopes. ... • Analysis of this type of failure is very complex and rarely done. On a découvert une analogie formelle entre le glissement sur un plan et le glissement d'un coin de roche le long de deux plans. Dans cet exposé figure un programme complet pour le modèle très répandu: le "Hewlett-Packard HP-65". Failure could arise from a single discontinuity, a pair of … Landslide developed in rock mass usually has irregular shear plane. As an alternative to computer drafting, Fig. Die Bemessungsformel dient in beiden Fällen auch zur Durchführung einer umfangreichen Parameteranalyse um die Empfindlichkeit der Konstruktion auf die Variation der einzelnen Parameter zu ermitteln. non-associative character of toppling-sliding rock slope failures, examples of experimental data were chosen from the rock mech-anics literature to address (iii). In the following sections a method is developed which does away with these disadvantages and consequently substantially simplifies the design of rock slopes. A modified pseudo-dynamic approach was used for a reliability-based stability analysis of plane failure rock slopes. Fig. Kinematic Analysis: Kinematic analysis is a method used to analyze the potential for the various modes of rock slope failures (plane, wedge, toppling failures), that occur due to … 1. analysis for rock slopes and also calculating factor of safety values for plane and wedge failures based on the limit equilibrium theory. Stability Analysis of Rock Slopes with Plane and Wedge Failure by Means of a Pocket Calculator. The common methods for the analysis of a slope’s stability are Culmann Method, Ordinary Method of Slices and Bishop Method of Slices. American Society of Civil Engineers. The application of the method is illustrated in several practical examples of the design of rock slopes. These methods are developed on the assumption that the plane of failure is circular arc, apart from the Culmann method that assumes a plane surface of failure through the toe of the slope. Traditionally, rock slope stability analyses are performed to determine the economic design of manmade or natural slopes. Priest (1985) investigated the prediction of unstable block or wedge by the use of stereographic rotation plane. Hoek, E. and Bray, J. Part of Springer Nature. 3 shows examples of computed daylight envelopes for a family of east-sloping rock faces with slopes in 58 increments. Quelques exemples illustrent l'application à des cas concrets. Failure of a rock slope on one or two plane surfaces is the simplest but at the same time the most important type of sliding failure and forms the basis for the stability analysis of rock slopes. Gravitational and seepage forces tend to cause instability in natural slopes, in slopes formed by excavation and in the slopes of embankments and earth dams. The orientation and spacing of the discontinuities plane with respect to the slope face are the determinants of rock slope failure. The presented method can obtain not only the detailed stability status at any grid node of a complex shear plane but also the global safety of the slope. The discovery of a formal analogy between the plane failure problem and that of wedge failure on two intersecting plane surfaces makes it possible to use the basic formula also for the solution of the complicated three-dimensional wedge problem. and in the three dimensional case somewhat complicated. Für die Bemessung der Ankerkräfte zur Sicherung einer gleitgefährdeten Felsmasse wird für das ebene Problem eine Grundformel hergeleitet. 3 could be used as a set of reference curves: that is, the appropriate curves could be traced to obtain the daylight envelope required for slope stability analysis. The most important types of slope failure are illustrated in Fig.1. 2.6 Mechanism of rock slope failure under self weight, water forces, surcharge, horizontal seismic force, and stabilizing force. Plane failure analysis of rock slopes: A reliability approach. You could not be signed in. Despite the simplicity of the mathematical model, the necessary computations using present methods are time consuming on account of the large number of parameters entering into the computations (geometrical parameters, material properties, anchor forces etc.) Factor of safety is the shear strength at the time of failure τ f compared to the stress acting at that plane τm. (a) Plane, (b) wedge, (c) circular and (d) toppling -sliding. In this manner the engineer can obtain a good idea of the sensitivity of the rock slope construction to changes in the individual parameters. failure, buckling failure and circular failure, are often observed. You do not currently have access to this content. The first failure occurred in a 20 m high granite slope that was stabilized by removing the top 6 m and installing a number of tensioned rock anchors in the toe. An analysis is presented here which can take these factors into account. The original Hoek-Brown (HB) failure criterion was used to analyse the stability of rock slopes. - 213.144.97.145.

PubMed Google Scholar. The rock mass which is subject to potential sliding failure is assumed to be a rigid body and the stability analysis is carried out using the method of limit equilibrium analysis. Fig. Geotechnical & Geological Engineering Varying the tension crack from vertical to 70° only has an effect when the upper slope angle is less than 20°. It is found that varying the angle of the upper slope from 0° to 30° causes a significant reduction in the factor of safety. Failure of a rock slope on one or two plane surfaces is the simplest but at the same time the most important type of sliding failure and forms the basis for the stability analysis of rock slopes. The basic formula may in both cases also be used to make a detailed parametric study to investigate the sensitivity of the rock slope construction to variations in individual parameters. 16th U.S. Modes of failure in rock slopes (after Hoek and Bray [1]). This site uses cookies. Avec une calculatrice électronique programmable, ces investigations peuvent être faites à la fois rapidement et sans calculs fastidieux sur le terrain-même. HISTORY Petterson (1955) first applied the circle method to the analysis of a soil failure in connection with the failure of a quarry wall in Goeteberg, Sweden. An approach for calculating distributed factor of safety of the irregular shear plane was put forward in this paper. 2. Introduction.
