Seismic refraction survey is a non destructive method used in site investigation to identify the seismic velocity subsurface strata. Although it is widely known, the reliability of the result is still doubtable for some reason as well as due to an engineer’s ignorant, which insist on using conventional method rather than new advanced method causing the lack of usage in geophysical method for testing. This study aims to produce a correlation between P-wave velocity value and point load strength… Expand
Lithological Control on the Estimation of Uniaxial Compressive Strength by the P-Wave Velocity Using Supervised and Unsupervised Learning
The correlation of UCS with VP has been assessed based on the rocks' lithology and Artificial neural network has been used as a robust predictive tool to estimate the UCS using the VP and rock type information. Expand
Correlation between mineral composition and P-wave velocity, strength and textural properties of sulfate rocks in dry and saturated conditions
Abstract Sulfate rocks are one of the problematic rocks that have always caused many problems during or after construction of infrastructures. In this research, by sampling of Gachsaran FormationExpand
