Analysis of Shallow Slope Failure | Agg-Net

2021-10-1 · The shallow slope failure occurred on an upper-level bench slope and measured about 14m high and 20m wide at the toe. Slope failures are controlled by rock structure. Intersecting rock fractures form the failure surface exposed towards the top part of the slope face. The failure surface is then assumed to continue towards the toe of the slope ...

Identifying, correcting the causes of bearing failure

2012-5-1 · Many bearings that fail are removed and replaced too quickly without sufficient levels of analysis into what caused their failure. This means that similar failures could occur again, resulting in further damage and costly unscheduled downtime.. Examination of the failure mode often reveals the true cause of bearing failure, but this procedure is complicated by the fact that one failure mode ...
