... community. The geomechanical classification SMR - Slope Mass Rating (Romana 1985) allows a preliminary low-cost assessment of susceptibility of rock slopes to failure. It consists of an adaptation of the RMR - Rock Mass Rating (Bieniawski 1989), which was first introduced as a geomechanical classification...

... 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...

... Some topics, which difficult the effective use of RMR for dam foundations, are reviewed and a new geomechanics classification system, DMR (Dam Mass Rating), is proposed -as an adaptation of RMR- giving guidelines for several practical aspects in dam engineering and appraisal of dam foundation...

... The SMR geomechanics classification system (adaptation of RMR for slopes) is reviewed with data from 87 actual slopes in Valencia. In a research project, SMR has been applied by a GIS system, as a method to forecast stability problems in future road construction. On revient sur la...

... independently of Wickham et al. (1972) and Bieniawski (1973) but it builds extensively on the RQD method of Deere et al. (1967) introducing five additional parameters in order to modify the RQD value. The Rock Mass Rating (RMR) method, also known as the Geomechanics Classification, was developed by Bieniawski...

Paper Number: ISRM-4CONGRESS-1979-117
... SUMMARY: The Geomechanics Classification of rock masses was proposed in 1973 and has since been applied to such varied rock engineering projects as tunnels, caverns, slopes and foundations in civil engineering and to haulages and chambers in mining. The classification is based on six...
