Laboratory and computational analysis of fracture mechanics of rocks, stress-induced failure of intact rocks, and impacts on excavatability and rippability of intact rocks. Implications of mineralogy, texture, fabric and geological deformation history to fracture behaviour and yield strength of intact rocks. Applications to underground excavation of tunnels and caverns, geofluidl resource exploitation and to slope stability of rock masses.
