This course for mining and geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists presents the principles of rock slope stability analysis and remedial measures, the evaluation, analysis and control of rockfall hazards, and the theory and application of probability and risk analysis in the context of both slope stability and rockfalls. The practical application of theory and principles is illustrated by several case studies.
This course is the third in a suite of five Practical Rock Engineering courses. Other titles in the suite include Introduction, Structural Analysis, Stress Analysis, and Excavation and Support.
The entire suite of courses has been upgraded and enhanced by the author to reflect advances in theory and practice that have occurred in recent years. Enhancements include the provision of many new figures and images.
Practical Rock Engineering 3 - Slope Stability and Rockfalls consists of 13 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, examples, design tables and an extensive author reference, plus interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 11 hours of viewing content.
