Evaluation of rock mass strength criteria
Knowledge of the rock mass behaviour in general, the failure process and the strength in particular, is important for the design of all kinds of underground excavations. One of the most common waysExpand
An engineering geological appraisal of the Jamrani Dam Site, across the Gaula river in Kumaun Himalaya, India
A 130-m high dam is under construction across the River Gaula in Outer Kumaun Himalaya, India. It is located on Lower Siwalik rocks consisting of sandstone, siltstone and claystone. The presentExpand
Rock Mass Classification Systems and Seismic Velocities
According to their case study the authors recommend to use seismic velocities especially shear wave velocity to characterize the rock mass instead of classical rock mass classification systems. TheirExpand
