Development rock behavior index around underground space using a rock engineering system

This paper describes the application of rock behavior index (RBI) based on the rock engineering systems (RES) to assess the rock behavior around underground spaces. There are many geological parameters that affect the rock behavior around these structures. The most effective parameters taken into account in this paper are: uniaxial compressive strength, rock quality designation (RQD), joint surface condition, joint...
