Abstract: In this technical note, rock mass has been regarded as an equivalent anisotropic continuum. Constitutive relationships for the rock masses have been derived. The approach aims to capture the overall behavior of the rock mass based on the constitutive characteristics of intact rock and rock joints including their orientation, spacing, roughness (waviness), number of joint sets, block size, and normal and shear stiffness, etc. This model has been applied to analyze a tunnel using a software package developed for the purpose, with satisfactory results. ¬© 2008 ASCE.
