About the KATS category

KATS (Kinematic Analysis Tools for Slopes) is a tool developed by Itasca that assesses instabilities caused by day-lighting wedges and planar failures formed when different structural sets interact with the orientation of a given slope. KATS main application is for bench-berm scale analysis, which is understood as a first step in the mining slope design process for moderate and competent rock masses. It is also possible to perform a kinematic analysis in inter-ramp scale.
