ROCK MASS STUDY FOR UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTION WORK

ETUDE DU MASSIF ROCHEUX POUR LES TRAVAUX SOUTERRAINS

The aim of this recommendation is the standardization of methods and definitions for the inventory of the technical characteristics of rocks with a view to constructing underground structures. It is hoped to lead to a better understanding between engineers and geologists. It facilitates the statistical inventory of the characteristic values of rocks and the transfer of the experience acquired to new structures. This recommendation deals firstly with rocks and blasting operations. Any other method of excavation will be dealt with at a later date in another recommendation. This recommendation is an addition to standard SIA 198: underground operations. (TRRL)
