# RocFall

<b>Statistical Analysis of Rockfalls</b><br><br> <i>RocFall</i> is a statistical analysis program for assessing the risk of falling rocks on steep slopes. Typical applications include rock cuts and open pit mine slopes. Engineers use <i>RocFall</i> information on the kinetic energy and trajectories of falling rocks to determine the capacity and location of protective systems. Model geometry and material properties can be easily modified for quick parametric analysis. For overall slope stability analysis, use <i>Slide</i> or <i>RS2</i>. <br><br>For a comprehensive program overview, including a description of available features and options, see the <a href="https://www.rocscience.com/help/rocfall/webhelp6/RocFall.htm">Online Help</a>.

### Tech Support

- How is the size of rocks determined when using Rock Shapes?
- Is it possible to display the slope angle?
- Why do I appear to have rocks with total kinetic energy higher than the barrier capacity that are not passing through the barrier?
- Is there a guideline for the number of rocks to throw?
- How does RocFall apply standard deviation to seeder variables?
- Why do I not see a correlation between rock size and runout distance?
