Rock Mass Rating

To examine the effects of rock mass parameters on characterizing the quality of rock mass using the rock mass rating (RMR). This simulation compares the results of two different modifications of the RMR, RMR76, and RMR89, using five parameters: intact strength, rock quality designation (RQD), joint spacing, joint condition, and water.

Learning Outcomes
  • Examine the impact of rock mass parameters on the RMR values.
  • Understand the differences between RMR76 and RMR89 systems.
