Abstract

This paper uses 2D DDA program to simulate the failure process of highly jointed rock slope with a fault. In addition, seismic forces, as a most common triggered factor of landslide, are also simplified simulated by applying an initial velocity to the slope. Based on the simulation results, the weakest discontinuity, fault, determines the slide path of rock blocks; the accumulation of blocks' displacements leads to the overall failure of slope; and the existence of highly developed joints provide the possibility of the accumulation of displacements.
