STABILIZATION AND CONTROL OR LOCAL ROCK FALLS AND DEGRADING ROCK SLOPES

The paper describes design and construction techniques for the stabilization and control of local rockfalls and the products of general degradation from rock slopes. Stabilization measures are discussed and illustrated by a series of idealized cross-sections and examples. Simple nomograms are developed for the design of rockbolt installations and rock-trap ditches. /Author/ /TRRL/
