Understanding and estimating the rock stress state has become increasingly important as nowadays numerical models are mainly used as rock engineering design tool. The objective in determining rock stresses may, in many cases, be seen as an interactive process. The type of data needed may change, depending on at what stage an underground project is in. Further more, preliminary measurements may reveal information on the stress state that will be useful as the project advances. Central Soil and… Expand
