Rock mass classifications form the backbone of the empirical design approach and are widely employed in rock engineering. Engineering rock mass classifications is quite popular and is used in feasibility designs. A rock mass classification is a . Rock Mass Classification is the process of placing a rock mass into groups or classes on defined relationships (Bieniawski, ), and assigning a unique description (or number) to it . The Tunnel Engineering Handbook, Second Edition provides, in a single convenient volume, comprehensive coverage of the state of the art in the design, construction, and rehabilitation of tunnels. It brings together essential information on all the principal classifications of tunnels, including soft ground, hard rock, immersed tube and cut-and Cited by: Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published. Tunnel design by rock mass classifications by Z. T. Bieniawski, , The Station edition, in English.
Rock mass classification systems are used for various engineering design and stability analysis. These are based on empirical relations between rock mass parameters and engineering applications, such as tunnels, slopes, foundations, and excavatability. The first rock mass classification system in geotechnical engineering was proposed in Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published. Tunnel design by rock mass classifications by Z. T. Bieniawski; 2 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Classification, Design and construction, Engineering geology, Rocks, Tunneling, Tunnels. Rock mass classification 5 Deere's RQD was widely used, particularly in North America, after its introduction. Cording and Deere (), Merritt () and Deere and Deere () attempted to relate RQD to Terzaghi's rock load factors and to rockbolt requirements in tunnels. In the context of this discussion, the most important use of RQD is as a component of the RMR and Q. Rock Support: Mechanics and Design Laboratoire de Mécanique des Roches −LMR s, Hoek-Brown strength criterion was developed, and was improved with the introduction of Geological Strength Index (GSI) in s. It is the most widely used criterion to estimate rock mass strength, and to provide rock mass parameters for design.
Encompassing nearly all aspects of rock mass classifications in detail, Civil Engineering Rock Mass Classification: Tunnelling, Foundations and Landsides provides construction engineers and managers with extensive practical knowledge which is time-tested in the projects in Himalaya and other parts of the world in complex geological conditions. Bhawani Singh, R.K. Goel, in Engineering Rock Mass Classification, Rock mass classifications form the backbone of the empirical design approach and are widely employed in rock engineering. Among other approaches, the empirical approach, based on rock mass classifications, is the most popular because of its simplicity and ability to manage uncertainties.

A rock mass rating system provides a method of incorporating some of the complex mechanics of actual rocks into engineering design. Moreover, the system was the first to enable estimation of rock mass properties, such as the modulus of deformation, in addition to providing tunnel support guidelines and the stand-up time of underground excavations.
