title = "PROBABILISTIC MODELING OF SHEAR STRENGTH OF ROCK DISCONTINUITIES USING DIRECT SHEAR TEST DATA.",

abstract = "Available literature on the topic is reviewed. The Mohr-Coulomb model and a power law model are used as strength criteria to model shear strength of rock discontinuities. Use of various regression techniques for point estimation of shear strength parameters from direct shear data are discussed. Bivariate beta and bivariate normal distributions have potential to represent the statistical distribution of strength parameters.",
