Basic Analysis

Basic analysis

The basic analysis is a first assessment of the data. The discontinuities shall be characterized by the followings:

  1. The position on the plane. The X and Y coordinates shall be measured from a zero datum
  2. The length
  3. The depth
  4. The height
  5. The type of discontinuities. Upper-surface breaking, bottom-surface breaking or embedded

The basic analysis determines if further investigation is necessary.
