Paper Number: ISRM-EUROCK-2017-046
... aggravates mining conditions, threatens the mine stability and increases working hazards. The violent damage mechanisms in deep mines are rock spalling and strainburst in their most severe forms [1, 2]. Strainbursts are considered the most common rockburst type in deep underground excavations [3]. Typical...

... of the trail until now. 1 INTRODUCTION Rockfalls are a major hazard in steep rocky slopes involving human settlement and infrastructure. While these phenomena do not pose the same level of eco- nomic risk as large scale landslides, the number of people injured by rockfalls tends to be of the same...

Rigid body rockfall models allow a more realistic inter- pretation of rockfall events by representing rock with a real size and geometrical form. This study presents the analysis of potential rockfalls that threaten the Sumela...
