2 Introduction The development of deep underground space has received high attentionThe deformation behavior and stability ofunderground structures depend principally onthe shear strength of discontinuities in rock masses.The shear strength is generally dominatedby surface characteristics of rock joints.Direct shear testMeasurement and evaluation of joint surfaceIn recent years, the development of deep underground space has received high attention. And the deformation behavior and stability of underground structures depend principally on the shear strength of discontinuities in rock masses. Moreover, the shear strength is generally dominated by surface characteristics of rock joints, but the relationship has not been clarified. So, in this study, the dependency of mechanical behavior on boundary conditions and the relationship between the mechanical behavior and the surface characteristics are evaluated.・ The dependency of mechanical behavior on boundary conditions.・ The relationship between the mechanical behavior and the surfacecharacteristics are evaluated.
3 Constant normal load condition Freeσn＝ConstantτConstant normal load (CNL) conditionRock slope (non- reinforcement)The CNL condition is constant normal load condition. So, the CNL condition is fit for considering the field of non reinforcement such as rock slope.
4 Constant normal stiffness (CNS) condition σn≠ConstantJointτConstant normal stiffness (CNS) conditionDeep undergroundIn deep underground, joint is constrain from rock masses. And the normal stress is change by shear. So, the shear test under CNS condition was carried out.Constraint from rock massesChange of normal stress
5 Digital-controlled shear test apparatus Vertical JackSpecimenHorizontal JackIn this study, a high performance Digital-controlled shear test apparatus was used. In this shear test apparatus, the specimen was set between lower box and upper box and rock joint is sheared by removing the lower box horizontally. Both normal and shear forces are applied by hydraulic cylinders through a hydraulic pump which is servo-controlled. Three digital load cells for measuring shear and normal loads are set with rods connected at two sides of the shear box. The loading capacity is 400kN in both the normal and shear direction.

8 Test cases J2 J１ J3 (Large asperity in the center and smooth surface) (Many small asperities)These figures are the surfaces of test specimens. J1 has a large asperity in the center and smooth surface. J2 have many small asperities. J3 is the specimen of previous study with very smooth surface. J1 and J2 were used for direct shear test, and J3 was only used for evaluation of surface characteristics.J3(Specimen of previous study with very smooth surface)
9 Each of J1 and J2 has 9 cases; 18 cases at all Test cases・Control condition Constant normal load (CNL) condition and constantnormal stiffness (CNS) condition・Initial normal stress σn0: 1MPa, 2MPa (50～100ｍ), 5MPa (about 250ｍ)・Normal stiffness: kn J1 is 1GPa/m and 7GPa/mJ2 is 1GPa/m and 3GPa/m,Control conditions are constant normal load condition and constant normal stiffness condition, and the initial normal stresses are 1MPa, 2MPa and 5MPa. The normal stiffness of J1 are 1GPa/m and 7GPa/m, and J2 are 1GPa/m and 3GPa/m. 9 cases of shear tests were carried for each J1 and J2. The total test cases are eighteen cases.Each of J1 and J2 has 9 cases; 18 cases at all
10 Result of shear test (J1,σn0=2MPa) CNL conditionCNS condition(kn=3GPa/m)CNS condition(kn=7GPa/m)This figure shows the result of shear test of J1 under initial stress of 2MPa. The left figure shows shear displacement versus shear stress, and the right figure shows shear displacement versus normal displacement. For all test, the largest shear stress occurs in very small shear displacement. In the CNS condition, the shear stress is close to that of CNL condition. The larger the normal stiffness is, the more normal strain would be strengthened and the residual strength will be lager.
11 Surface of specimen before and after shear (J1,σn0=2MPa) (mm)Before shearThese figures show the surface of specimens before and after shear. The top figure is the surface before shear and left side is surface after shear on CNL condition, and right side is on CNS condition. Before shear, a large asperity could be found in the center of specimen. After shear on CNL condition, these larger asperities of all cases suffered damage, and the greater the normal stiffness is, the larger damaged area and depth happen.After shear on CNS condition ( kn=3GPa/m)After shear on CNL condition
12 Evaluation method of surface roughness by projective covering method Projective covering cellFracture surfaceThe fractal dimension of the surface of specimen was evaluated by the projective covering method. In this method, the fracture surface is divided into a large number of small squares by a selected scale. And the fractal dimension is calculated by substituting the total area to the apparent area as shown in such equation.AT(δ): Total areaAT0(δ): Apparent area(2＜Ds＜3)δ : length of a mesh
13 Transition of fractal dimension CNLJ2CNS(kn=1GPa/m）CNS（kn=3GPa/m）Before shearingThis figure is the transition of fractal dimension on J2. All cases, the fractal dimension have increased after shear compared with before shear. And the larger maximum normal stress causes larger fractal dimension. Moreover, the higher the normal stiffness is, the smaller fractal dimension increase.
14 Statistical parameter of two dimensions Z2 is the average slope of asperityN: Total number of measuring points along the profiles yi： ith value of height⊿x：Minute distance to direction xZ2 which is the average slope of asperity given by under equation was also evaluated for the joint surfaces.
15 Transition of Z2 J2 CNL Before shearing CNS(kn=3GPa/m） CNS（kn=7GPa/m） This is the transition of Z2. The smaller maximum normal stress is, the smaller Z2 becomes. Because Z2 is evaluated only at the direction of shearing, it exhibits the smoothing process of joint surface at the direction of shearing.

JRC is joint roughness coefficient which is a two dimensional indicator. However, actual rock joint is three dimension. So I suggested under equation. ‘a’ and ‘b’ are obtained from the relationship between JRC and Ds on experience.‘a’ and ‘b’ are obtained from the relationship between JRC and Ds on experience.

Upper legend is Barton’s empirical equation, and the under one is the proposed equation. The base line expresses that the theoretical value is equal to experimental value. The prediction values by using both kinds of methods agree well with the experiment ones. The validity of proposed equation is proved by these results.Proposed equation
18 Conclusion Influence Constraint from rock blocks Surface characteristics of jointThe relation of Initial normal stressand surface roughness（about CNL）Shear behavior of rock jointAs a result, the constraint from around rock blocks, surface characteristics of joint and the relation of initial normal stress and surface roughness affect the shear behavior of rock joint.Then, the validity of using 3-D fractal dimension to predict shear stress is confirmed.
