Port Hills rockfall modelling

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) commissioned Geovert Ltd to carry out a three-dimensional (3D) rockfall modelling study on the Port Hills. The aim of this study, together with other investigations and work commissioned by the Christchurch City Council, was to help CERA to develop its policy advice to Cabinet regarding zoning decisions for rockfall and boulder roll-affected areas in the Port Hills. The 3D modelling was undertaken with the Hy-Stone programme developed at the University of Milano-Bicocca’s Dipartimento di Scienze Geologiche e Geotecnologie. The University’s mainframe computer was used to run the simulations, and Austrian rockfall specialists verified model outputs, and provided advice on likely energies and boulder trajectories. This information assisted Geovert to formulate advice around potential rock fall mitigation options for the Port Hills.
