This course focuses on description and representation of a rock mass, stress and strain in a rock mass and deformation and failure of a rock mass. These are applied to rock slope stability analysis and design of underground excavations.

Learning Outcomes

A student completing this course will be able to:

1. Apply concepts of stress, strain, elasticity and plasticity to intact rock and rock masses
2. Collect rock mechanics data in the field, combine it with laboratory test data and assess the stability of excavations in rock
3. Determine likely rock mass behaviours under different excavation and loading conditions and propose mitigation solutions
