Abstract

Since 1990s, researchers in the discontinuous deformation analysis (DDA) community have dedicated a great deal of effort on the stability analysis of slopes, tunnels and caverns. This paper contains a summary of more than 80 published papers or theses concerning stability analysis using DDA. These studies are grouped into the following two categories: (a) validations with respect to analytical solutions, laboratory experiment results or field data; and (b) applications of rock stability analysis using DDA. After reviewing the validations and variety applications, we are focusing on discussing recent issue in this research filed: limitations and solutions concerning cohesive-friction in DDA stability analysis. Addressed by this review, we find that DDA can perform more than adequately in stability analysis for a variety of engineering problems. In addition, we present a general solution for modeling rock masses behaviors with cohesive-friction joints.
