Rock Classification

The Rock Classification tab is used to edit the default classification systems used in RSLog.

Any changes in definitions will affect the boring logs for previous and future projects.

These Rock Classification definitions are sorted into the following categories:

  • Slaking - the process in which earth materials disintegrate and crumble when exposed to moisture.
  • Weathering - the physical (and sometimes chemical) decomposition of a rock due to exposure.
  • Alteration - any change in the mineralogic composition of a rock brought about by physical or chemical means.
  • Strength - Strength classification is based on the Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS) of core specimens. When assessing strength, the geologist/engineer should be aware that you are estimating the intact strength (a sample of rock breaking along a defect provides an invalid strength estimate and the strength should be reassessed).
  • Defects - defects are divided into several categories including: Type, Surface Shape, Roughness, Infill Type, Infill Thickness, and Infill Character.

To add/edit a default rock classification definition:

  1. Go to the left-hand navigation menu and select Tools > Settings > Rock Classification.
  2. Select the corresponding tabs for each classification system (Slaking, Weathering, Alteration, Strength, Defects) and adjust the default settings accordingly:
    1. Click + button from the toolbar located on top of the table.
    2. Enter the Symbol, Term, and Description once the dialog is prompted.
    3. Click Save button.
  3. To edit a record, select the checkbox next to the record and click on Edit button from the toolbar.
  4. If you want to ‘reset to default’, click the corresponding button.
