Q&As with Dr. Evert Hoek, Future Modelling of Slopes and more

MAY 2021

The Future Modelling of Hard Rock Slopes is Near

The use of limit equilibrium and numerical methods for geotechnical problems, including slope stability, has experienced exponential growth in recent years. This is due to the availability of commercial software and inexpensive computing power. However, are we maximizing the value of such modelling in the assessment of failures and risks in hard rock slope stability?

To reopen the Brockville Tunnel in Canada, Rocscience tool UnWedge was used as a part of the feasibility safety stage to determine:
  • where were bolts needed in the tunnel to secure the wedges?
  • where had the unstable blocks already fallen out during construction and how much of those could have been retained?
