Paper presented at the ISRM International Symposium – EUROCK 2021, September 21–24, 2021
Paper Number: ISRM-EUROCK-2021-108
... unsolved issues in rockfall forecasting. Intensification of rainstorms due to climate change will enhance hydrostatic pressures in fractured bedrock, which will likely lead to increase in rockfall activity and connected risks for humans and infrastructures. Here we present a hydro-mechanical stability...
