Numerical Modeling of Rock Slopes with a Potential of Block-Flexural Toppling Failure

H. Sarfaraz; M. Amini

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 247-259

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2019.8887.1778

Abstract
  One of the most important instabilities of rock slopes is toppling failure. Among the types of toppling failure, block-flexural failures are more common instability which occurs in nature. In this failure, some rock blocks break because of tensile stresses, and some overturn under their weights, and ...  Read More

Numerical analysis of slide-head-toppling failure

H. Sarfaraz; M. H. Khosravi; M. Amini

Volume 10, Issue 4 , October 2019, , Pages 1001-1011

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2019.8521.1731

Abstract
  In layered and blocky rock slopes, toppling failure is a common mode of instability that may occur in mining engineering. If this type of slope failure occurs as a consequence of another type of failure, it is referred to as the secondary toppling failure. “Slide-head-toppling” is a type ...  Read More

Effect of large blocks position on stability analysis of block-in-matrix slopes

E. Khorasani; M. Amini; M. F. Hossaini

Volume 10, Issue 2 , April 2019, , Pages 465-477

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2019.7855.1648

Abstract
  Bimrocks are complex geomaterials that are defined as mixtures of rocks composed of geotechnically significant blocks within a matrix of finer texture. Bimslopes are made from bimrocks and are usually seen in weathered and shallow environments. Some characteristics of blocks affecting the strength of ...  Read More

Influence of modeling material on undercut slope failure mechanism

M. H. Khosravi; T. Pipatpongsa; J. Takemura; M. Amini

Volume 8, Issue 4 , October 2017, , Pages 645-662

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2017.5641.1373

Abstract
  A series of physical modeling tests were conducted by means of a beam type geotechnical centrifuge machine in order to investigate the drainage impact on the slope failure mechanism under centrifugal acceleration. Meanwhile, the phenomenon of stress redistribution in undercut slopes and the formation ...  Read More
