We would like to focus your attention at a new book on rockfall entitled "Rockfall engineering" published by ISTE/John Wiley & Sons. This is an up-to-date, international picture of the state of the art in rockfall engineering.

he three basic stages of rockfalls are considered: the triggering stage, the motion stage, and the interaction with a structure stage; along with contributions including structural characterization of cliffs, remote monitoring, stability analysis, boulder propagation, design of protection structures an risk assessment. Academic contributions are illustrated by practical examples, and completed by engineering contributions where practical purposes are thoroughly considered.

This title is intended for engineers, students as well as researchers. The chapter on rockfall trajectory modelling is written by ecorisQ members.

The Research Center of Engineering Geology of the Institute for Geotechnics of Vienna University of Technology is organising the 6th Colloquium "Rock Mechanics - Theory and Practice" on the 22nd and 23rd March 2012 in Vienna, Austria.

Small changes in Rockyfor3D v4.0

Firstly, creating input data for a "with-forest" simulation is more easy since standnr.asc is not required anymore.

Secondly, a special soiltype for asphalt roads has been added.

Thirdly, a simulation “with rockfall nets” allows collecting detailed data on the rockfall kinematics since the current program allows the nets to act as calculation or control screens.
