Key Features

  • Identify the most significant parameters influencing the behaviour of a rock mass
  • Divide a particular rock mass formulation into groups of similar behaviour, rock mass classes of varying quality
  • Provide a basis of understanding the characteristics of each rock mass class
  • Relate the experience of rock conditions at one site to the conditions and experience encountered at others
  • Derive quantitative data and guidelines for engineering design
  • Provide common basis for communication between engineers and geologists

Readership

Construction Managers, Construction Engineers, Structural Engineers, Geotechnical Engineers, and Earthquake Engineers
