Paper presented at the 53rd U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 23–26, 2019
Paper Number: ARMA-2019-1792
... ABSTRACT: This paper presents a rock-slope kinematic analysis using a robust workflow that combines geologic reconnaissance with UAV-based photogrammetric methods. The photogrammetric workflow generates high-density, georeferenced, three-dimensional point clouds in true-color, enabling us...

... that overall slope angle of ~50° and bench slope of ~60° were required to maintain stable pit slopes. Kinematic analysis with DIPS 5.1 software found the hanging wall to be threatened mostly by wedge failure, with less potential for planar and toppling failures. 1. INTRODUCTION Upstream Oil & Gas...

... analysis. Stereonets are widely used to carry out kinematic analysis for rock slopes. The stereonet-based method provides qualitative solutions and is dependent on the presence of tight clusters of discontinuities for which representative orientation values can be assigned. In addition, the stereonet-based...

... is a road cut near the village of Platres in Cyprus. The structural regime was defined for each site based on the results of field mapping (dip/dip direction, fracture frequency and mean trace length). The identified fracture sets were then used in a kinematic analysis to establish the potential for wedge...
