Rockfall simulation software

Project description


PlatRock is a multi-model software for the numericla simulation of rockfalls. This scientific tool implements rock propagation algorithms on 2D and 3D terrain and gives statistical data about resulting trajectories.


At the moment PlatRock is only tested on debian-based platform unix distros. Prior to PlatRock installation, please check that the following dependencies are satisfied.

  • python >= 3.6, which is the default on modern linux distros ;
  • gdal (which can be installed on debian-based systems with sudo apt install gdal-bin).

All other dependencies should be automatically installed by pip.


After the prerequisites check, simply run

pip3 install --upgrade platrock

You can also try the development version with (install git with sudo apt install git first) :

pip3 install --upgrade git+


Examples for all PlatRock simulation models are available on PlatRock gitlab.

Source code

The source code of platrock is also available on the gitlab repository. The master branch fits the version that is hosted on pypi.


PlatRock is licenced under the GNU General Public License v3 (GPLv3).
