SummaryWe study the effects of discontinuity network parameters on the formation of removable wedges in rock slopes. Discontinuities are simulated using the Poisson disk model, and removable wedges are identified using block theory. The formation of removable wedges of different sizes is assumed to follow a Poisson process. Poisson regression and Monte Carlo simulation are then used to identify statistically relevant parameters of the model, and to study the effects that variations in their… CONTINUE READING
