Paper Number: ISRM-EUROCK-2017-095
.... Introduction Failures in rock slopes are controlled by both rock material and discontinuities. In highly jointed rock mass with weak rock material, failure surface cuts through intact rock but in rock masses, with less number of joints and strong rock material, failure is controlled mainly by joint planes [1...

Paper Number: ISRM-EUROCK-2017-106
... Abstract Discontinuities play a key role in the mechanical, hydraulic and deformational behaviour of rock masses, frequently having a considerable influence on the stability of rock slopes. They can be characterized by several geometric parameters as the orientation, persistence, spacing, etc...
