ABSTRACT: A penstock rock slope was analyzed by two methods of stability analysis. They are a limiting equilibrium analysis initially developed by Goodman and Bray, and Discontinuous Deformation Analysis (DDA). Because the latter needs no assumption of a failure mode, and takes into account the deformability and real-time response of a slope, it proved to be more versatile and realistic.
