RocFall3 3D Assessment of Slopes at Risk for Rockfalls
3D Model Creation
Constructing rockfall models is easier and faster than ever. Import ground surfaces from geological modelling or mine planning software along with digital elevation models from various sources in industry-supported file formats (obj, dxf, stl, dtm, etc.) The Terrain Generator allows you to import digital elevation models from satellite data. Using RocFall3’s built-in surface construction methods, you can build surfaces from point cloud data, elevation data, polyline lofting, or by extrusion.
Integration with RocFall2
The integration of RocFall3 with its 2D counterpart RocFall2 allows you to import models directly from RocFall2 and extrude the geometry to easily create a 3D model. You can also define a 2D section within a full 3D model and export it back to RocFall2 with predefined materials and parameters to seamlessly run 2D analysis.
3D Barrier Design & Analysis
Analysis of rockfall stabilization measures is crucial to any slope design. RocFall3’s barrier logic is designed after Rocfall2 which includes unlimited number of barriers, deformable barriers, energy capacity, elongation, and adjustable height.
RocFall3 across Applications
-Account for loss of bench width, assess the risk of runoff reaching lower operating levels, and design mitigation measures for your mines.
-Analyze instabilities in highly jointed rock slopes which pose risks for kinematic slope failures.
-Assess the risk of rockfalls reaching roadways and design and model remedial measures such as barriers and berms.

Explore the latest features in RocFall3
Like RocFall2, RocFall3 consists of both lumped mass and rigid body analysis methods.
The lumped mass model includes impact and sliding physics, whereas the rigid body engine has a sphere impact model. Both lumped mass and rigid body physics engines can scale the coefficient of restitution (Rn) by velocity and mass.
Rockfall Data Visualization
The ability to easily visualize and interpret analysis data is crucial for any rockfall model. RocFall3 allows you to view rock paths, trajectory, and final stopping location. It can also contour various data like energy and bounce height along the path while plotting runout distributions and spatial distribution of stopping location. RocFall3’s suite of visualization tools includes runout distributions, barrier statistics, and easy filtering of data for your analysis.
