RocFall by Rocsciences is one of the leading rockfall modelling programs on the market. It is a staple tool for engineers to help estimate the trajectory, bounce heights and energy of falling rock. In the most recent release, RocFall has incorporated barrier information which now allows users to validate the position, size and capacity of a barrier. The validation process uses barrier characteristics stored in a database with information such as commercial height, energy capacity, and elongation obtained from manufacturer’s test data (such as those required by ETAG 27). In an upcoming release, RocFall will also allow the user to validate a barrier according to the Austrian standard ONR 24810! Stay tuned for further updates!
