Abstract: The weathering degree of joint blocks and its infilling affects the deformational behaviour of filled joint. To appreciate its behaviour and level of criticality to an engineering construction, filled joint should be described and classified according to its weathering degree. This paper proposes the procedures for classifying filled joint in the field. Based on weathering classification of weathered rock, the suggested method is suitable for filled joint resulting from differential weathering of joints in granite.
