A database of 150 data sets, including modulus of elasticity of intact rock (Ei), uniaxial compressive strength (UCS), rock mass quality designation (RQD), the number of joint per meter (J/m), porosity, and dry density for possible input parameters, and the modulus deformation of the rock mass determined by a plate loading test for output, was established. The values of geological strength index (GSI) system were also determined for all sites and considered as another input parameter. Sensitivity analyses are considered to find out the important parameters for predicting of the deformation modulus of rock mass. Two approaches of sensitivity analyses, based on statistical analysis of RSE values and sensitivity analysis about the mean, are performed. Evolution of the sensitivity analyses results establish the fact that variable of UCS, GSI, and RQD play more prominent roles for predicting modulus of the rock mass, and so those are considered as the predictors to design the GP model. Finally, two equations were achieved by GP. The statistical measures of root mean square error (RMSE) and variance account for (VAF) have been used to compare GP models with the well-known existing empirical equations proposed for predicting the deformation modulus. These performance criteria proved that the GP models give higher predictions over existing empirical models.", }
