Prediction of rock mass response to mining therefore requires a working understanding of the concepts of force, traction and stress, and displacement and strain. The following discussion of these issues follows the treatments by Love (1944) and Jaeger (1969). In the discussion, the usual engineering mechanics convention is adopted, with tensile normal stresses considered positive, and the sense of positive shear stress on any surface determined by the sense of positive normal stress. The geomechanics convention for the sense of positive stresses will be introduced subsequently.

The requirement of physical continuity of the displacement field throughout a continuous body leads automatically to analytical relations between the displacement gradients, restricting the degree of independence of strains. 36. Three of these identities are of the form ∂ 2 ε yy ∂ 2 ␥x y ∂ 2 εx x + = ∂ y2 ∂x2 ∂ x∂ y and three are of the form 2 ∂ 2 εx x ∂ = ∂ y∂z ∂x − ∂␥x y ∂␥yz ∂␥zx + + ∂x ∂y ∂z These expressions play a basic role in the development of analytical solutions to problems in deformable body mechanics.

X y = G␥x y , etc. 10 A transversely isotropic body for which the x, y plane is the plane of isotropy. ␯E 2␯G = (1 − 2␯) (1 + ␯)(1 − 2␯) and is the volumetric strain. Transverse isotropic elasticity ranks second to isotropic elasticity in the degree of expression of elastic symmetry in the material behaviour. Media exhibiting transverse isotropy include artificially laminated materials and stratified rocks, such as shales. In the latter case, all lines lying in the plane of bedding are axes of elastic symmetry.
