# RocTopple

## Block Toppling Model

Analyze 2D block or block-flexural toppling stability given the slope geometry, and the joint spacing, dip and strength. RocTopple employs the Block toppling method of Goodman and Bray (1976), a Limit Equilibrium method which takes into account toppling and sliding failure modes of each individual block.

## Deterministic or Probabilistic Analysis

Calculate a factor of safety with deterministic analysis or the probability of failure for probabilistic models. You can model variability in geometry, point of force application, joint and bedding strength, water pressure, external loads, and supports by assigning statistical distributions to variables. Create histogram, cumulative, and scatter plots of statistical data.

## RocTopple across Applications

• Mining
• Rock Slopes
• Rock Cut

### Mining

Take advantage of the flexural toppling model to analyze cracks and rock bridges in your mining projects.

### Rock Slopes

Capable of analyzing block failure modes for all types of rock slope applications.

### Rock Cut

Analyze steep slopes like rock cuts and implement bolts for added support.

## RocTopple seamlessly integrates with

• RS2

+

Export your slope and block geometry from RocTopple as a DXF file and import it into RS2 for advanced analysis using Finite Element Method.

## The Latest Features

• ### Block Flexure Toppling Analysis

Block Flexural toppling analysis based on the Limit Equilibrium Method of Amaini, Majdi and Veshadi (2012), which considers block failure modes due to toppling, sliding, tensile bending and shearing.

• ### Batch Compute

Save time with the Batch Compute feature which enables you to compute several deterministic and/or probabilistic RocTopple model files (.rtop) at once and quickly generate results to text or Excel format.

• ### Automate From Excel

Automate a deterministic or probabilistic analysis in RocTopple by reading in various numerical input data from an Excel template, and quickly generating computed results to text or Excel format.
