Abstract

Distributed discontinuities essentially affect to the mechanical behavior of rock mass. Such discontinuities can be modelled by introducing the damage tensor of Murakami et al. which was originally proposed for creep failure of metal-like materials. In this paper, the concept is extended to the rate-insensitive rock mass behavior involving joint sets. An in-situ observation method of the damage tensor is proposed.
