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.

[[Category:Rock mechanics]]

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

Behaviour 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
