Geometrical simulation studies of coastal cliff failures in Liassic strata, South Wales, U.K.

Description :
This paper analyses a greater range of conditions, including various cliff face morphologies, undercut depths, joint patterns, overhanging torque forces and potential failure paths. The models have been developed to obtain probabilistic solutions to various lower Lias rock failures using a stochastic approach. The simulation method determines a potential configuration failure surface from the lowest calculated safety factor values.
