Rock fall from cut slopes adjacent to roadway and railways are significant during heavy rains in mountainous terrains. The main objective of the project is to recognize the gravity of this problem and also carry out appropriate improvements for the rock fall hazard assessment by introducing appropriate Rock fall Hazard Rating System.
Proposed research considers determining some in-situ properties such as interface friction, lineaments friction, facture indexes and weathering condition of the rock. This approach provides useful means of exploring a range of possibilities and reaching practical decisions on some difficult problems.
