<p>In the construction of a tunnel, the characterization of the rock mass is performed in three different steps, in the pre-investigations, in the engineering geological forecast and in the tunnel mapping during construction. There has in previous work been ...

In this work Data Mining tools are used to develop new and innovative models for the estimation of the rock deformation modulus and the Rock Mass Rating (RMR). A database published by Chun et al. (2008) was used to develop these models. The parameters of ...

This paper aims to provide a correlation between the two quality indexes, with the intention of supplying a tool to aid in both the design phase and the daily control of work execution. The formulas were obtained from the on-site observation of rocky masses ...

The main rockmass classification systems make use of similar rockmass parameters. It is therefore shown how the input parameters of the RMR, Q and RMi systems can be combined into one set of tables. These enable the ground quality to be found directly and ...

The paper presents geological and engineering geological characteristics of the flysch in outlined area which is expected to have a lot of similarities with very well defined and investigated flysch deposits in Split.The investigated area belongs to the ...

<p>The focus of this study is on potential damages to buildings resulting from expansive soils in Tanzania, particularly clay soils in Kibaha. For the fact that most of the affected structures are founded on expansive soils, a clear understanding of the behaviour ...

After 35 years of use throughout the tunnelling world, the RMR and Qclassifications have proved themselves on numerous projects. They stillface misconceptions however, as reflected in recent articles in T&amp;TInternational. Here, Nick Barton, of Nick Barton ...

<p>The objective of this paper is to present a new rock mass classification system which can be appropriate for rock slope stability assessment. In this paper an evaluation model based on combining the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Fuzzy Delphi ...

This paper presents the result of comparison between the modulus of deformation obtained from dilatometer tests and the geomechanical quality of the rock mass using the RMR classification and the basic intact rock properties such as uniaxial compressive strength ...
