Modelling applied to problems in rock mechanics

The formulation of an appropriate model is a fundamental requirement when designing, or investigating the performance of a rock structure. A brief introduction to the use of dimensional analysis and the laws of similitude, and to the most commonly used mathematical and physical modelling techniques as applied to the analysis of stresses and displacements around underground openings is given. The methods are illustrated using several examples from mining and civil engineering projects being undertaken currently. This lecture was given at monash university on 4 October 1979.
