چکیده
In this research, several physico-mechanical properties are measured on three types of Alvand granitoid rocks across five weathering grades ranging from fresh to completely weathered rocks. Also, weathering processes of the rocks are evaluated by petrographic studies. It is evident that a realistic weathering classification is necessary, mostly for establishing the geotechnical models in engineering geological studies. For this reason, development of a quantitative weathering classification is the main purpose of our study. In the proposed triangularweathering classification diagrams, four index tests, including uniaxial compressive strength, point load strength, P-wave velocity and quick water absorption, are selected to predictweathering grades. Also, types of weathering have been determined using two petrographic indices. The new triangular-engineering, geological-weathering classifications are supported by other researchers' reported data. The obtained results indicate that the classifications can be used for a wide range of granitoid rocks.
