This publication reviews the use of soil mechanics classifications with special reference to those applicable to tunnel construction. A comparative analysis is presented of methods of classifying rock masses, and the establishment of indices of quality. The last part of the report describes an application of convergence measurements and soil mechanics classifications to the design of tunnel support structures. (TRRL)
