Estimating Rock Mass Strength

σc = uniaxial compressive strength of the intact rock material σ1 = major principal stress at failure and σ3 = minor principal stress at failure The uniaxial compressive strength for the rock mass σc rockmass can be expressed by setting σ3 = 0 in Equation 21 thus obtaining σc rockmass =σc s 22...
