Rock Joint Micro-Scale Surface Roughness Characterisation using Photogrammetry Method

M. Bahaaddini; M. Serati; M. H. Khosravi; B. Hebblewhite

Volume 13, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 87-100


  A proper understanding of the shear behaviour of rock joints and discontinuities is yet a remaining challenge in the rock engineering research works owing to the difficulties in quantitatively describing the joint surface roughness both at the field and the laboratory scales. Several instruments and ...  Read More

Estimation of In-Situ Block Size Distribution in Jointed Rock Masses using Combined Photogrammetry and Discrete Fracture Network

M. Ghaedi Ghalini; M. Bahaaddini; M. Amiri Hossaini

Volume 13, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 175-184


  Estimation of the in-situ block size is known as a key parameter in the characterization of the mechanical properties of rock masses. As the in-situ block size cannot be measured directly, several simplified methods have been developed, where the intrinsic variability of the geometrical features of discontinuities ...  Read More

Application of Drone-Based Data for Directing Exploration Activities and Estimating Resources in Emperador Marble Quarry, Kerman Province, Iran

H. Shahriari; M. Honarmand; S. Mirzaei; A. Saffari

Volume 13, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 253-267


  This research work aims to discuss the methodology of using the drone-based data in the initial steps of the exploration program for the dimension stone deposits. A high-resolution imaging is performed by a low-cost commercial drone at the Emperador marble quarry, Kerman province, Iran. A ground resolution ...  Read More
