Optimizing the Terzaghi Estimator of the 3D Distribution of Rock Fracture Orientations

Orientation statistics are prone to bias when surveyed with the scanline mapping technique in which the observed probabilities differ, depending on the intersection angle between the fracture and the scanline. This bias leads to 1D frequency …

Experimental Study of S-wave Propagation Through a Filled Rock Joint

This experimental study proposes a Split Shear Plates model to investigate the effects of a filled joint on S-wave attenuation. A dynamic impact is used to create frictional slip and generate an incident S-wave. The filled joint is simulated using …

Acoustic Emission Characteristics of Sedimentary Rocks Under High-Velocity Waterjet Impingement

The success of waterjet drilling technology requires further insight into the rock failure mechanisms under waterjet impingement. By combining acoustic emission (AE) sensing and underwater sound recording techniques, an online system for …

Effect of Water Saturation on the Fracture and Mechanical Properties of Sedimentary Rocks

Fracture and mechanical properties of the water saturated sedimentary rocks have been experimentally investigated in the present paper. Three types of sandstones and one type of shale were saturated in water for different periods of time. They …

Analytical Study of the Mechanical Behavior of Fully Grouted Bolts in Bedding Rock Slopes

Bolting is widely used as a reinforcement means for rock slopes. The support force of a fully grouted bolt is often provided by the combination of the axial and shear forces acting at the cross section of the bolt, especially for bedding rock …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering covers the experimental and theoretical aspects of rock mechanics, including laboratory and field testing, methods of computation and field observation of structural behavior. The journal maintains the strong link between engineering geology and rock engineering, providing a bridge between fundamental developments and practical application. Coverage includes case histories on design and construction of structures in rock such as underground openings, large dam foundations and rock slopes.

Fields of interest include rock mechanics in all its varied aspects including laboratory testing, field investigations, computational methods and design principles. The journal also reports on applications in tunneling, rock slopes, large dam foundations, mining, engineering and engineering geology.
