Paper Title:
The Finite Element Model of Discontinuous Rock Masses
  Abstract

The traditional limit equilibrium theory could not consider the discontinuous property of rock slope, and the existing research methods for the discontinuous rock mass confined to the Discrete Element Method and Discontinuous Deformation Analysis. Based on the finite element theory, considering the strength reduction of the joint mechanical parameters, the slope stability with one or two sets joints are analyzed in this paper. The results show that, the sliding surface for one set joint slope is close to the joint dip, and the sliding surface for two sets joints slope is close to the control joint dip.
