A review of behavioral rock properties used for input to the finite element method are summarized. Rock properties presented in the literature were primarily obtained from laboratory specimens. Methods to determine applicable field properties via testing, calculations and. empirical correlations are included.
Suggested behavioral properties of the structural concrete-to-rock interface are proposed.
Specific property values, resulting from the literature review, are presented as input for a finite element parametric evaluation of navigation structures.
