Analysis of Seismic Dynamic Characteristics of High and Steep Rock Slopes



Knowing the dynamic characteristics of rock slopes under seismic effects is the premise of revealing instability mechanism of bedrock and overburden slopes under earthquakes. This chapter will, with the help of observed data of field seismic motion monitoring array, large-scale shaking table test, and numerical calculation, study the influence of factors like bevel angles, seismic intensity, type of seismic input wave, type of slope body, and local slope shape on the dynamic characteristics of rock slopes from different aspects.
