3D Model Creation

Constructing rockfall models is easier and faster than ever. Import ground surfaces from geological modelling or mine planning software or with the Terrain Generator, import digital elevation models directly from satellite data coordinates to speed up the model creation process. Using RocFall3’s other built-in surface construction methods, you can also build surfaces from point cloud data, elevation data, polyline lofting, or by extrusion.

Integration with RocFall2

The integration of RocFall3 with its 2D counterpart RocFall2 allows you to import models directly from RocFall2 and extrude the geometry to easily create a 3D model. You can also define 2D sections within a full 3D model and batch export them back to RocFall2 with predefined materials and parameters to seamlessly run group analyses in 2D.

3D Barrier Design & Analysis

Analysis of rockfall stabilization measures is crucial to any slope design. RocFall3’s barrier logic is designed after Rocfall2 which provides flexibility in having an unlimited number of barriers, deformable barriers, energy capacity, elongation, adjustable heights, and more.

RocFall3 Across Applications

  • Mining
  • Rock Slopes
  • Transportation

Mining

Account for loss of bench width, assess the risk of runoff reaching lower operating levels, and design mitigation measures for your mines.

RocFall3 for Mining

Rock Slopes

Analyze instabilities in highly jointed rock slopes which pose risks for kinematic slope failures.

RocFall3 for Rock Slopes

Transportation

Assess the risk of rockfalls reaching roadways and design and model remedial measures such as barriers and berms.

RocFall3 for Transportation

RocFall3 Seamlessly Integrates With

  • RocFall2

+

This integration helps import 2D models directly from RocFall2 and extrude the geometry to easily create a 3D model in RocFall3. You can also define a 2D section within a full 3D model and export it back to RocFall2 with predefined materials and parameters to seamlessly run a 2D analysis.

  • Rigid Body Analysis and Expanded Shape Library

    The rigid body engine accommodates 16 rock shapes and multi-contact physics to calculate impacts, sliding, and rolling. Define rock seeder properties using the new rock shape library.

  • 3D Barrier Analysis

    Analyze the spatial distribution of rock retainment, energies, velocities, heights, and impact angles along barriers. Quickly visualize the intensity of impacts.

  • Rockfall Data Visualization

    Easily view rock trajectories and spatial heatmaps of end locations, impact points, rock energies, and bounce heights to locate and design protection systems. RocFall3’s suite of visualization tools includes a user-friendly interface for easy filtering of data. Graph distributions of runout distances, energies, velocities, and heights or contour trajectories with these quantities.
