Constructing a deep-shaft or underground mine changes the area of tension and field of stress of the surrounding mountain area. 

Rock mechanics is tasked with investigating the mechanical behaviour of the rock as a result of this redistribution of stress. 

Modelling includes the idealisation of complex empirical phenomena with respect to material behaviour, the static system and the stress values. 

Determining the material constants is one of the first steps in this modelling process.

We are looking forward to supporting you.
