Participation of Analytical Parameters in Predictive Empirical Models for Rock Mass Deformation Modulus: A Review

Mohammad Reza Shahverdiloo; Shokroallah Zare

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 10 June 2024


  The deformation modulus of rock mass is necessary for stability analysis of rock structures, which is generally estimated by empirical models with one to five input parameters/indexes. However, appropriate input parameter participation to establish a sound basis for a reliable prediction has been a challenging ...  Read More

Estimating the deformation modulus of jointed rock mass under multilateral loading condition using analytical methods

M Ebadi; Saeed Karimi Nasab; H Jalalifar

Volume 2, Issue 2 , July 2011, , Pages 146-156


  rnDetermination of rock mass deformation modulus is very important in different projects, especially in civil and mining engineering works. In-situ measurements such as dilatometer, plate load and flat jack methods may be applied to determine the deformation modulus. However, these methods are very expensive ...  Read More
