Abstract

A new method of evaluating the stability of fractured rock masses has been proposed. Quite different from the continuous approach of finite element methods, it may be applied to a wide range of structures composed of discrete blocks. This technique is particularly suited to study the stability of rock embankments, and fractured rock masses subjected to strong earthquake accelerations.
