- ... In rock engineering design, significant advances have occurred in recent years in numerical modelling capability with increasing trends to ever greater use of synthetic rock mass models and discrete fracture network (DFN) modelling, but all too often with little comparative improvement in geologic base data. As a consequence, there is even more need that reliable estimates be available of strength ...
