Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-0009
... ABSTRACT: The bearing capacity of a rock foundation is a function of the rock mass properties as assessed in the field, and the strength and deformation characteristics of intact rock determined in the laboratory. The inherent variability of the rock at the mass and laboratory scales...

Paper presented at the 49th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 28–July 1, 2015
Paper Number: ARMA-2015-140
... Abstract This paper discusses the most common forms of drain clogging and its influence on seepage under concrete dams built on permeable rock foundations. The increments of the uplift pressure caused by reduction in drain length or diameter, reduction of its effective flow section, reduction...

... for distinguishing the boundary of continuity and discontinuity in the field of tunneling, there exist very few in the field of rock foundation. One of the most appropriate may be of Serrano et al. [5] as: n i miS BSR 1 1 (1) Where SR is the spacing ratio, B is the foundation width; Smi is the joint spacing...
