    discontinuities on the engineering behaviour of rock masses. Other notable scientists and engineers from a variety of disciplines did some interesting work on rock behaviour during the early part of this century. von Karman (), King. Rock material is the term used to describe the intact rock between discontinuities; it might be represented by a hand specimen or piece of drill core examined in the laboratory. The rock mass is the total in-situ medium containing bedding planes, faults, joints, folds and other structural features. Rock masses are discontinuous and often have.

ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF ROCK MASSES • Rock masses can be considered to be a function of a number of measurable parameters, with respect to their geomechanical properties display in massive and actual form. • The properties are determined based on weathering, material strength, stratification of lithologies, frequency of jointing.

Engineering in Rock Masses by F. Bell (Editor) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important. ISBN. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. The digit and digit formats both work. Engineering in Rock Masses is a chapter text that deals with the behavior, investigation, and construction of rock masses.

The first chapters review the properties, behavior, classification, and occurrence of groundwater in rock masses. The subsequent chapters discuss the stress analysis, exploration, laboratory testing, geophysical methods Price: $ Rock mass classification methods are commonly used at the preliminary design stages of a construction project when there is very little information.

It forms the bases for design and estimation of the required amount and type of rock support and groundwater control measures. Encompassing nearly all aspects of rock mass classifications in detail, Civil Engineering Rock Mass Classification 4/5(2). Rock mass classifications form the backbone of the empirical design approach and are widely employed in rock engineering.

Engineering rock mass classifications is quite popular and is used in feasibility designs. A rock mass classification is a powerful tool in these designs if it is used correctly. Rock Engineering and Rock Mechanics: Structures in and on Rock Masses will be of interest to rock mechanics academics as well as to professionals who are involved in the various branches of rock engineering.

Table of Contents. Keynote lectures. Shear strength of rock, rock joints and rock masses – Problems and some solutions. is a platform for academics to share research papers. One of the main engineering solutions for reducing the permeability of a fractured rock mass is to inject a grout, which may be a suspension (e.g.

cement grout), an emulsion (e.g. bitumens) or a solution, which subsequently blocks the flow paths through the rock mass. The major pitfalls are: (i) using rock mass classifications as the 'ultimate empirical cook book', i.e. ignoring analytical and observational design methods; (ii) using one rock mass classification system only, i.e.

without cross-checking the results with at least one other system; (iii) using rock mass classifications without enough input data.

Rock mass properties Introduction Reliable estimates of the strength and deformation characteristics of rock masses are required for almost any form of analysis used for the design of slopes, foundations and underground excavations. Hoek and Brown (a, b) proposed a method for. Abstract.

This chapter first describes rock engineering problems and the importance in determination of rock engineering properties. Then the two general categories of methods (direct and indirect methods) for determining rock engineering properties are briefly discussed and two examples are presented to show how existing data and empirical correlations can be used to estimate the engineering.
