Abstract

Investigations were performed to explore the possibility of developing correlations between rock mass properties and fracture tensor parameters. The first invariant of the fracture tensor is suggested as an index of rock mass quality. Another fracture tensor parameter is suggested as an index for rock mass joint anisotropy. Possible correlations between rock mass mechanical (and/or hydraulic) properties and fracture tensor parameters are shown.
