In rock slopes where sedimentary rock masses dip into the face of the slope, failure may occur by block toppling. In traditional analytical models, the failure surface is assumed to be single plane running from the upper columns to the toe of the slope which may be inconsistent with the physical situation where the weak plane has undergone counter-tilting within the rock slope due to variation of lithology and weak plane characteristics. To better reflect the physical situations, the failure… CONTINUE READING
