Rock Mechanics

icon youtube

Rock mechanics is an important field of geotechnical engineering as it is the theoretical and applied science concerning the physical behavior of rocks and rock masses.

We offer an extensive range of modern laboratory solutions for strength, stiffness and durability determinations according to international standards suitable for a wide range of rock types. When a rock sample is subjected to defined stress conditions in the laboratory, the stress-strain diagram can also show non-linear relations for very small strains, hysteresis, anisotropy, etc. All these phenomena can be mathematically described and used for mechanical design simulations.
