<p>Although many intact rock types can be very strong, a critical confining pressure can eventually be reached in triaxial testing, such that the Mohr shear strength envelope becomes horizontal. This critical state has recently been better defined, and correct ...

The selection of the blast damage factor D is a technical support question that arises frequently in relation to the use of the Hoek-Brown failure criterion. This note sets out the origin and background of this factor and provides some guidance on its selection ...

The aim of this paper is the sensitivity analysis of GSI and disturbance factor dependent equations that characterize the mechanical properties of rock masses. The survey of the GSI system is not our purpose. The results show that the rock mass strength calculated ...

In 1984 and 1985, two 7.6m diameter TBM tunnels were driven from the Donkin-Morien peninsula in Nova Scotia to access the Harbour coal seam. The design of the ground support was based on identifying zones of rock failure through the application of the Hoek ...

In this paper several case examples are presented to illustrate the application of the high-end (spalling) and low-end (weak ground) transition Hoek-Brown relationships proposed by Carter, Diederichs and Carvalho, (2007) as a basis for better defining rock ...

In this paper the historical development of the Hoek-Brown failure criterion and the associated Geological Strength Index (GSI) has been presented.

<p>This paper applies numerical limit analyses to evaluate the ultimate bearing capacity of a surface footing resting on a rock mass whose strength can be described by the generalised Hoek&ndash;Brown failure criterion [Hoek E, Carranza-Torres C, Corkum B. ...

In this paper in order to overcome the difficulty of finding an acceptable equivalent friction angle and cohesive strength for a rock mass the program called "RocLab" is introduced, as a convenient means of solving and plotting the equations of Hoek - Brown ...
