Geotechnical software company Rocscience is building the hype ahead of the launch of their newest product, RocFall3. The program will extend their popular 2d rockfall simulation software to the next dimension, allowing assessment of complex terrain to determine rockfall catchment needs as well as barrier design requirements. Check out the video below for more details. I’m eagerly awaiting this one next month!
Amazing video of a rockslide as it happened yesterday along U.S. Highway 64 in the Ocoee River gorge in Tennessee. TDOT crews had almost finished removing rockslide debris from an event earlier in the day when a second slide occurred, blocking the road again. That looks like a pretty planar joint set dipping right into the roadway and everything was wet from the recent rains. Click through for the video.
