Rock Mass Parameters For The Brisbane CBD

Ralph Cammack, Robert Bertuzzi, Adrian Smith and Richard Brehaut

Rock mass parameters are presented for the typical range of rock conditions encountered in the Brisbane CBD and surrounding area. Rock mass units are classified based on lithology, weathering, intact rock strength and degree of disturbance. The rock mass parameters are based on the Author’s combined experience from Brisbane infrastructure projects including the M7 Clem Jones Tunnel, Airport Link and Cross River Rail. The parameters may be useful for design and construction of future ground engineering projects in Brisbane.
