Abstract

Rock stress can only be measured at local points in space but determination of the state of stress in large rock masses is affected by heterogeneities, most significantly faults and horizon boundaries. Faults and horizon boundaries can greatly affect the magnitude and orientation of the in-situ rock stress state. The discrete element method is specifically designed to solve fracture problems.
