Shear strength properties of low roughness rock joints

Alenezi, Faisel M. H. A. A. (2018) Shear strength properties of low roughness rock joints. [USQ Project]


Joints in a rock mass have a significant effect on the shear strength and deformation properties of the rock. Different experimental research projects have been performed since the last decades on the rock joints using the conventional direct shear apparatus under constant normal load (CNL), where the normal stress which acts on the joint was assumed to be constant during the shearing process. Hence, this project aims to investigate shear strength properties of rock joints under low normal stress values for various joints having three dimensional roughness distribution.
