The purpose of this report is to present an evaluation of rock property measurement in relation to the problems of rapid excavation, to summarize recent theory and representative data, to point out their usefulness and limitations, and finally to indicate some of the pressing needs for further research and development. In most cases the investigators in specific areas of research have presented complete analyses of their work. Where possible, further analysis has been made, primarily in terms of application of results of research. (Author)
