Fractal of Frequency of Joints and its Application in Rock-Mass Structure
Developmental degree of the rock-mass joint is often obtained through the exploratory adit in water-power engineering and it is the vital index for evaluating rock-mass structure and quality. In this paper, easy algorithm for the fractal of frequency of joint is established by a case in a certain power station in southwest China, through this method, the fractal of the rock-mass structure in different adit sectors can be gotten easily and thus the structure type of the rock-mass can be separated from each other according to the fractal value.
