  • Accurate quantification of roughness is important in modeling hydro-mechanical behavior of rock joints. A highly refined variogram technique was used to investigate possible existence of anisotropy in natural rock joint roughness. Investigated natural rock joints showed randomly varying roughness anisotropy with the direction. A scale dependant fractal parameter, Kv, seems to play a prominent role than the fractal dimension, Dr1d, with respect to quantification of roughness of natural rock… CONTINUE READING
