<p>Several analytical methodologies help estimate the shear strength of rock discontinuities whose main limitations are the difficulty to obtain all necessary parameters to satisfactorily represent the boundary conditions and influence of infill materials. The objective of this study is to present a predictive model of peak shear strength for soft rock dis...

<p>Most methods available in the literature for soil classification from cone penetration test (CPT) data define soil classes using laboratory tests. One disadvantage of this approach is that field soil conditions are difficult to replicate in a lab. The alternative adopted in this work is trying to define soil classes only by the similarity of the CPT mea...
