THE APPLICATION OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY TO THE STABILITY OF EXCAVATED ROCK SLOPES

The use of phototheodelite photography and the subsequent photogrammetric measurements as the basis for slope stability analysis in open pit mines is described together with the application of stereometric photography to the measurement of roughness profiles on real and model rock samples. A single camera technique for the measurement of displacements occurring during the excavation of a model rock slope is explained. /Author/TRRL/
