Drilled shafts in rock are popular as foundations of heavy buildings akin to street bridges and tall constructions. even if a lot has been learned about the research and layout of drilled shafts in rock, all of the significant findings are published within the kind of reviews and articles in technical journals and convention complaints. This ebook is the 1st to provide and summarize the most recent details in a single quantity, highlighting for the reader the main alterations among foundations in soil, and foundations in rock lots containing discontinuities. This e-book provides equipment for characterizing discontinuities in jointed rock lots, and contemplating their results at the behaviour of drilled shafts. A valuable instrument for practitioners in geological engineering, rock mechanics and starting place engineering.

However, since a rock mass is usually inaccessible in three dimensions, the real discontinuity shape is rarely known. Information on discontinuity shape is limited and often open to more than one interpretation (Warburton, 1980a; Wathugala, 1991).

Fracture cleavage (also known as false cleavage and strain slip cleavage) is a term describing incipient, cemented or welded parallel discontinuities that are independent of any parallel alignment of minerals. Spencer (1969) lists six possible mechanisms for the formation of fracture cleavage. In each mechanism, lithology and stress conditions are assumed to have produced shearing, extension or compression, giving rise to numerous closely-spaced discontinuities separated by thin slivers of intact rock.
