<p>Flysch formations are generally characterised by evident heterogeneity in the presence of low strength and tectonically disturbed structures. The complexity of these geological materials demands a more specialized geoengineering characterisation. <br />In ...

Estimation of rock mass properties can be achieved by laboratory testing, in situ testing, back analysis or the use of rock mass classifications (GSI, RMR, Q, etc.). Although reasonable geotechnical parameters, from the use of the rock mass classification ...
Reference: IAEG2006 Paper number 314
A discussion on the use of the geological strength index (GSI) for the characterisation of tectonically undisturbed but lithologically varied sedimentary rocks rock masses is presented. Two GSI charts are proposed for estimating the mechanical properties ...
