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 ...

Current approaches to rockfall hazard and risk mitigation have been dominated by a model in which rockfall is treated as a global slope stability phenomenon which is mainly triggered by precipitation, freeze-thaw, or root wedging. The methods implemented by ...

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>In this paper the historical development of the Hoek-Brown failure criterion and the associated Geological Strength Index (GSI) has been presented.</p>
Reference: Soils and Rocks, No. 2. November 2007.
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 ...
