Title

A Simple Method for Measuring Discontinuity Orientations from Terrestrial LIDAR Data

Abstract

The measurement of discontinuity (joint) orientations is critical in assessing the stability of discontinuous rock slopes. The discontinuity orientations are used as input to all discontinuous modeling programs and methods, including kinematic screening methods and limited equilibrium sliding methods.
