In the first lecture, we have often referred to the concepts of “plane structure”, “unit rock body”, “degree of separation”, “gap” and we have also talked about “geologic discontinuities” and their characteristics. We have, at last, mentioned how, in Rock Mechanics, statistical methodology is used in studying structural problems and in describing rock mass. This description represents the first step in the study of rock mass mechanical behaviour.
