GeoRock 3D is a program for analysis of rock falls in 3D and for the design and optimisation of protective works utilising a sophisticated algorithm for spatial analysis.
The slope in question is generated from an xyz mesh that may be imported from variuos formats or suitable external software.
The triangulation technique is extremely important and it is recommended that Incremental Delaunay or anysotropic triangulation are used.
In this respect the Geostru software “TriSpace” is eminently suitable.
A tridimensional model can be imported directly from chart work / maps using Geostru Autocad Application (G.A.A.)
The slope is discretized in homogeneous zones, having similar mechanical characteristics, namely normal and tangential restitution coefficients.
By a geometrical point of view the block is characterized by a spherical form rotating around its center of gravity, while its mechanical characteristics are hardness and mass.
Launch sites can be indicated directly on the 3D model specifying, for each launch, the launch velocity.
This provides three dimensional trajectories, speed and energy.
Protective works can be inserted directly on the 3D model and their position optimised in relation to the displayed trajectories.
Facilities are provided for an archive of standard barriers that may be reutilsed directly on the 3D model.
Protective works sizing
Geostru Software provides a tool, BARRIER DESIGN (B.D.) for the design and verification of rigid or elastic barriers.
This software interfaces with Geostru software TriSpace and Georock 2D.
