Paper presented at the ISRM International Symposium - EUROCK 2016, August 29–31, 2016
Paper Number: ISRM-EUROCK-2016-009
... ABSTRACT: As open pit slopes continue to increase in depth, new approaches to characterising rock slope masses and slope failure mechanisms are required; these approaches should integrate and optimize new developments in remote sensing and geomechanical modelling. The author presents the state...

... geotechnical parameters allows calculating of well-known safety factors for slope failure in rock and soil. Furthermore, the effect of water availability on slope stability can also be taken into account and is useful to estimate the effect of long-term precipitation events on slope stability. The calculated...

... through the rock mass being also necessary to explain the slope failure. A complete description of these mechanisms is presented by Ramírez and Alejano (2007) All such failures require that the main joint family is parallel to the excavated slope. An interesting, less known case arises when. i) the...

... Abstract Slope stability in open pit mines is an important issue. Most open pit coal mines are located in Kalimantan in which rainfall is very high and as such so is the probability of slope failure. It has been well accepted that slope failure risk consists of probability times consequence of...

... encountered the swelling problems. The Telnes ilmenite open pit mine in Southwestern Norway and the Goynuk lignite open pit mine in Turkey can be examples for the issue (Nilsen & Ballou 2006, Tabrizian 1989). In these mines swelling rocks caused slope failures. The topic of this study is about swelling...
