Modeling of Rock Joints Under Cyclic Loading Conditions Using Discontinuous Deformation Analysis

The shear strength of rock joints is an important factor to be considered when analyzing the stability of jointed rock mass. Rock joints tend to have smaller shear resistances in the reverse shearing than that of the forward shearing. A conceptual …

Modeling a Shallow Rock Tunnel Using Terrestrial Laser Scanning and Discrete Fracture Networks

Discontinuity mapping and analysis are extremely important for modeling shallow tunnels constructed in fractured rock masses. However, the limited exposure and variability of rock face orientation in tunnels must be taken into account. In this …

Effects of Heat Shock on the Dynamic Tensile Behavior of Granitic Rocks

This paper presents a new experimental method for the characterization of the surface damage caused by a heat shock on a Brazilian disk test sample. Prior to mechanical testing with a Hopkinson Split Pressure bar device, the samples were subjected …

Precursors of Dynamic Excitations and Rupture in Rocks

A fracture process is stable as long as the process itself does not generate sources of kinetic energy (Zubelewicz and Mroz 1983 ). When the rate of the supplied energy exceeds the rate at which the material absorbs the energy, then, the energy …

Effects of the Loading and Unloading Conditions on the Stress Relaxation Behavior of Pre-cracked Granite

The relaxation behavior plays an important role in evaluating the long-term safety of the surrounding rock mass. Normally, the characters of the stress relaxation behavior of a rock mass can be described as the time-dependent rheological crack …

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.
