RockEng collects the raw data necessary for easily application to all industry-standard rock mass classification systems, including RMR89, RMR76, Q’, Q, and GSI.  By using standardized logging techniques, the data recorded from drilling campaigns can be readily used by the multiple parties involved in a project (owners, contractors and consultants).
