Preliminary Study on the Progressive Failure of a Layered Rock Slope under Explosions
The progressive failure process of a layer rock slope under explosions is simulated using two-dimensional Universal Distinct Element Code (UDEC). It is shown that the failure process of the slope can be divided into three phases, the formation and growth of local failure area as well as coalescence of sliding plane. In addition, the displacement components of a critical point of the slope are also suggested to be a progressive process.
