Keyblock analysis software for support design and fall of ground hazard analysis.
OHMS is the agent for JBLOCK.Contact Gerrit Kotze (firstname.lastname@example.org) for technical support or training requirements.
JBLOCK follows a probabilistic approach to keyblock analysis. Input parameters include joint orientation, partings, persistence, spacing, shear strength as well as the support layout and stope layout.
The basic use of JBLOCK is for qualitative analyses or comparative analyses relating to falls of ground and support layouts. Data can be calibrated using site specific fall of ground data and the analyses can incorporate laboratory as well as field strength data for discontinuities.Latest update: JBLOCK3211
