The availability of high resolution digital images of borehole walls using the Borehole Scanner System has made it possible to develop new methods of in-situ rock characterization. This thesis addresses particularly new approaches to the characterization of in . This book provides an interdisciplinary reference for research using in situ techniques to capture the real-time structural and property responses of materials to surrounding fields using electron, optical, and x-ray microscopies (e.g., scanning, transmission, and low-energy electron microscopy, and scanning probe microscopy), or in the.

This paper outlines the results from laboratory and in situ characterization of residual sludge. In particular, three potential applications of sludge either by itself or mixed with other materials were evaluated: landfill waterproofing material, filler material for .   Excavation – In-situ rock tests. Laboratory tests are usually performed in addition to and after field observations and tests. These tests serve to determine index values for identification and correlation, further refining the geologic model of the site and they provide values for engineering properties of the rock used in the analysis and design of foundations and cut slopes.

ISBN , Subsurface soil or rock properties are generally determined using one or more of the following methods: • in-situ testing during the field exploration program; • laboratory testing, and • back-analysis based on site performance data The two most common in-situ test methods for use in soil are the Standard Penetration.

Rock is unlike other structural materials; it is millions of years old and has already been subjected to a wide variety of natural mechanical, thermal and chemical processes. It systematically describes the classification and characterization of intact rock, rock discontinuities, and rock masses, and presents the various indirect methods for estimating the deformability, strength, and permeability of these components as well as the in situ rock stresses.

This book is a collection of ISRM suggested methods for testing or measuring properties of rocks and rock masses both in the laboratory and in situ, as well as for monitoring the performance of rock engineering structures. The first collection (Yellow Book) has been published in In situ invasive site characterization methods, such as the standard penetration test (SPT), the cone penetration test (CPT), and the dilatometer have been used in an effort to characterize the waste material and interpret the shear strength of the material (Castelli and Maugeri, ; McKnight et al., ).

These techniques test a relatively. The in-situ stresses and their redistributions due to nature or engineering perturbations may induce the failure of fractured rock masses, in terms of the reactivation of preexisting fractures (i.e., opening, closing, and shearing) and the propagation of new fractures (i.e.

Book Description Site characterization is a fundamental step towards the proper design, construction and long term performance of all types of geotechnical projects, ranging from foundation, excavation, earth dams, embankments, seismic hazards, environmental issues, tunnels, near and offshore structures.

The book addresses practical issues related to the geomechanical properties of these types of rock masses and their characterization, while also discussing advances regarding in situ investigation, safety, and monitoring of geotechnical structures in soft rocks. For more information: This book is a collection of ISRM suggested methods for testing or measuring properties of rocks and rock masses both in the laboratory and in situ, as well as for monitoring the performance of rock engineering structures.

The first collection (Yellow Book) has been published in This book focuses on the indirect methods with emphasis on empirical or theoretical correlations and combination of intact rock and discontinuity properties using analytical or numerical methods.

It does not mean that the direct methods are not important. In practice, a project should always include some types of laboratory and/or in situ tests. Proceedings of Geo-DenverNew Peaks in Geotechnics, held in Denver, Colorado, FebruarySponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE.
