RocTopple

Block Toppling Model

Analyze 2D block 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.

RocTopple

Deterministic or Probabilistic Analysis

Calculate a factory 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.

  • 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.
