Conceptual models for grain and rock mass fabrics were fomulated in Part A of the book and, based on these, rock mechanics models for stress-strain behaviour and permeability were derived. Methods of analysis to investigate stresses and deformations as well as seepage flow processes were subsequently developed for various problems in rock engineering in Part B. The capabilities of these procedures were then demonstrated by a series of examples in Part C.
