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


  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
