GENERALIZATION OF MAULDON'S AND GOODMAN'S VECTOR ANALYSIS OF KEYBLOCK ROTATIONS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by F. Tonon, published in this journal (Volume 124, Number 10, October 1998), is presented. The discusser and author are in agreement that rotation is a significant and oft-neglected failure mode. However, the discusser disagrees with the author's penultimate conclusion that rotatability must be considered only for those removable blocks that prove to be either inherently stable, even without friction, or stable with sufficient friction. Discussion is followed by closure from the author.
