Computer Modeling Of Catch Benches To Mitigate Rockfall Hazards In Open Pit Mines
Description:A computer analysis of bench stability has been developed to account for multiple occurrences of potential slope-failure modes in discontinuous rock masses. Bench-scale plane shears and tetrahedral wedges are simulated and stochastically analyzed to estimate the probability of retaining specified catch-bench widths. This geotechnical information is useful in designing bench configurations to improve pit-slope stability and help alleviate rockfall hazards.
