Abstract: Fractal dimension and characteristic lengths of rock masses are obtained by image processing. The edge detection and pixel scanning methods are used to acquire these parameters. From the numerical results, it is shown that when the scanning is fine enough the results are stable. So the method presented here would give reasonable values of the parameters in consideration.

Key words: rock scale information, image processing, fractal dimension
