... Abstract The Slope Mass Rating (SMR; Romana, 1985) geomechanics classification was developed as a sequel of Bieniawski's Rock Mass Rating (RMR) system, which was almost impossible to use in slopes due to the extreme range of the correction factors (up to 60 points of a maximum of 100...

... ABSTRACT Slope Mass Rating is a worldwide used rock mass classification intended to characterize and classify rocky slopes. It uses basic RMR Bieniwaski's classification and is obtained by subtracting a factorial correction factor depending on the discontinuity and the slope face geometrical...

... for slopes proposed by BIENIAWSKI. SMR (Slope Mass Rating) is a method for determining the adequate corrections factors to apply RMR to slopes (ROMANA, 1985,1986), This paper resumes data collected during two years research, analyzing slopes in calcareous rocks. The paper study the correlationship...

... SUMMARY The SMR (Slope Mass Rating) classification was introduced by ROMANA (1985) as a logical following to BIENIAWSKI RMR geomechanical classification. RMR (widely used in tunnels) is not of immediate use for slopes due to the fact that joints are a more governing parameter for stability...
