A brief history of the development of the Hoek-Brown failure criterion

Author : Evert Hoek Year : 2002 The original failure criterion was developed during the preparation of the book Underground Excavations in Rock. The criterion was required in order to provide input information for the design of underground excavations. Since no suitable methods for estimating rock mass strength appeared to be available at that time, […]

Mechanics of curved slip surfaces in rock

Mechanics of curved slip surfaces in rock Doi: Uknown Author : Richard A. Schultz Year : 2010 Curved slip surfaces are common structures in geologic and geotechnical situations. Important examples include geologic faults and the basal slip surfaces of landslides. The author analyses these structures by using two-dimensional boundary element and fracture mechanics methods to study […]
