Rock mechanics

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.

Slopes, tunneling, dams foundations and surface constructions requires the characterization of involved rocks and the analysis of their reaction to induced stresses.

When a rock sample is subjected to defined stress conditions in the laboratory, the stress-strain diagram can show non linear relations also for very small strains, hysteresis, anisotropy, etc.
All these phenomena can be mathematically described and used for mechanical design simulations.
Controls 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, from brittle to soft samples including also key sample preparation equipment.
