Determination of residual strength parameters of jointed rock masses using the GSI system
The Geological Strength Index (GSI) system, proposed in 1995, is now widely used for the estimation of the rock mass strength and the rock mass deformation parameters. The GSI system concentrates onExpand

FLAC / PFC coupled numerical simulation of AE in large-scale underground excavations
  • M. Caia, P. K. Kaisera, +4 authors H. Kurosec
  • 2007
Acoustic emission (AE) and microseismic (MS) events are indicators of rock fracturing or damage as the rock is brought to failure at high stress. By capturing the AE/MS events, underground excavationExpand
