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 ...
Hoek E. et al.
In this paper the historical development of the Hoek-Brown failure criterion and the associated Geological Strength Index (GSI) has been presented.
TECHNICAL NOTE: ESTIMATING MOHR-COULOMB FRICTION AND COHESION VALUES FROM THE HOEK-BROWN FAILURE CRITERION (1990)
This paper presents how to determine equivalent values for the Mohr-Coulomb friction angle φ' and the cohesive strength c' from the tangent to the envelope to the principal stress circles defined by the Hock-Brown criterion.
