Abstract

This paper deals with the dynamic analysis of block sliding on rock slope along plane surfaces, such as joints, bedding planes and faults. According to the results obtained in the shaking tests the dynamic friction along a sliding surface is dependent on the velocity of relative motion, and can be determined by using the proposed method of test. On the basis of conducted experiments a differential equation was established. The integration of the dynamics equation by numerical method provides a basis for evaluation of slope stability in terms of critical displacement and dynamic instability.
