<p>The aim of this paper is to estimate the uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) of rocks with different characteristics by using genetic expression programming (GEP). For this purpose, five different types of rocks including basalt and ignimbrite (black, yellow, ...

<p>The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between axial point load strength and uniaxial compressive strength in hydrothermally altered rocks, which are typical of the soft rocks found in northeastern Hokkaido, Japan.</p>

<p>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 ...

The RMi (rock mass index) system applies input of block size, joint characteristics and strength of intact rock to express the uniaxial compressive strength of a rock mass. From practical use in more than 5 years the RMi rock support method has been further ...
