    • Discrete modelling of a rockfall protective system 

      Thoeni, K.; Lambert, C.; Giacomini, A.; Sloan, S.W. (CIMNE, 2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Metallic wire meshes are used worldwide for rockfall protective systems, such as rockfall net barriers and drapery meshes. Within different types of meshes, the doubletwisted hexagonal mesh is commonly used. This paper ...
    • Numerical investigation on the performance of a rockfall drapery system 

      Thoeni, K.; Giacomini, A.; Lambert, C.; Sloan, S.W. (CIMNE, 2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This paper presents a discrete modelling approach which allows the simulation of rockfalls behind drapery systems. The falling rock is represented by a rigid assembly of spheres whereas the slope is represented by triangular ...
