In this wiki, rock mechanics will contain articles related to the static and quasi-static properties of rocks, and their behavior within the elastic, and inelastic, and failure regimes. Rock Physics will include topics related to dynamic rock properties.


Behavior of rock Linear elastic material Brittle and ductile behavior Typical rock behavior Effects of confining pressure Mechanical properties of rocks Stiffness Young's modulus Poisson's ratio Tensile strength Uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) Shear strength Triaxial compressive strength Mohr Circle diagram Stress strain relationships Strength of rock and failure criteria
