Types & Purpose of In-situ Rock Tests for Foundation Design

Introduction on In-situ Rock Tests In-situ Rock Tests are done to determine in-situ stresses & deformation characteristics and shear strength of jointed rock mass or critically weak seams within the rock mass, residual stresses within the rock mass, anchor capacities, and rock mass permeability. In-situ tests are often the best means for determining the engineering… Read More »
