Abstract

A new three-dimensional boundary element technique is presented for evaluating gravitational stresses in rock containing a single or multiple fractures. The boundary element analysis is based on the use of the integral equation written for the tractions on the boundaries, including internal boundaries from an excavation and existing discontinuities.
