Modelling failure mechanisms to explain rock slope change along the Isle of Purbeck coast, UK

Auteurs :
ALLISON, R.J.
KIMBER, O.G.

Description :
Results are presented of distinct element computer modelling used to examine rates and mechanisms of change in rock slopes and cliffs, where material intact properties determine process and form but the most significant controls are the joint pattern and cross-joint properties. Field and laboratory data have been collected for the Portland Limestone outcrop of the Isle of Purbeck, central southern England. There are resulting implications for spatial variations in rock slope evolution.
