Rock mechanics contains articles related to the static and quasi-static properties of rocks, and their behavior within the elastic, and inelastic, and failure regimes. All of the following pages should have the tag for the Category:Rock mechanics category.

Rock physics, on the other hand, includes topics related to dynamic rock properties.
