An Illustration of Determining Quantitatively the Rock Mass Quality Parameters of the Hoek–Brown Failure Criterion

In tunneling, determining quantitatively the rock mass strength parameters of the Hoek–Brown (HB) failure criterion is useful since it can improve the reliability of the design of tunnel support systems. In this study, a quantitative method is …

The Effect of Density and Porosity on the Correlation Between Uniaxial Compressive Strength and P-wave Velocity

P-wave velocity ( V P ) is often employed to determine and characterize the strength properties of rock materials. V P is a nondestructive test, cost-effective and easy to apply, both for site and laboratory conditions. This test widely has been …
