Gambar RocTopple Toppling Stability Analysis for SlopesToppling Stability Analysis for Slopes

Block Toppling Model
Analyze 2D block toppling stability given the slope geometry, and the joint spacing, dip and strength. RocTopple employs the Block toppling method of Goodman and Bray (1976), a Limit Equilibrium method which takes into account toppling and sliding failure modes of each individual block.

Deterministic or Probabilistic Analysis
Calculate a factor of safety with deterministic analysis or the probability of failure for probabilistic models. You can model variability in geometry, point of force application, joint and bedding strength, water pressure, external loads, and supports by assigning statistical distributions to variables. Create histogram, cumulative, and scatter plots of statistical data.

Support & Loading
Implement bolts to anchor potentially unstable blocks. Apply external loads to your models in the form of line loads, distributed loads, seismic loads and water pressure.

RocTopple across Applications

Mining
Take advantage of the flexural toppling model to analyze cracks and rock bridges in your mining projects.

Rock Slopes
Capable of analyzing block failure modes for all types of rock slope applications.

Rock Cut
Analyze steep slopes like rock cuts and implement bolts for added support.

RocTopple seamlessly integrates with

RS2
Export your slope and block geometry from RocTopple as a DXF file and import it into RS2 for advanced analysis using Finite Element Method.

Block Flexure Toppling Analysis
Block Flexural toppling analysis based on the Limit Equilibrium Method of Amaini, Majdi and Veshadi (2012), which considers block failure modes due to toppling, sliding, tensile bending and shearing.

Batch Compute
Save time with the Batch Compute feature which enables you to compute several deterministic and/or probabilistic RocTopple model files (.rtop) at once and quickly generate results to text or Excel format.

Automate From Excel
Automate a deterministic or probabilistic analysis in RocTopple by reading in various numerical input data from an Excel template, and quickly generating computed results to text or Excel format.
