MAIN PRINCIPLES AND METHODS OF INVESTIGATIONS OF IN- SITU ROCK MASSES

The in-situ determination of rock mass characteristics (test procedure and interpretation of results) must be closely associated with the engineering problem encountered (type of structure, foundation and the methods of calculation being used) and must produce the necessary valid information. A descriptive account is given of the general approach to field investigations of rock masses. Some problems connected with test procedure, equipment used and the processing of the results, taking into account specific features of fissured rock masses, are discussed. The number of the covering abstract of the congress is TRIS no. 385148. (TRRL)
