In the process of evaluating the stability of some rock slopes, the discontinuities which mainly destroy the stability of future slope can not be understood and the locations of the slope can not be determined because of lacking of the exploration data. This paper determines the combination molds and the location of potential sliding surfaces using the method of crack network simulation to do statistics about all the discontinuities, which aims to resolving the problems of determining the locations and idiographic conformations of potential sliding surfaces in the rock slop.
