Dynamics, as a branch of mechanics, deals with dynamic load (stress), deformation (strain) and failure (fracturing) in relation to time. Hence rock dynamics covers a wide scope, ranging from the initiation of dynamic loads, forms of dynamic loads, transmission and attenuation of dynamic loads, rock fracturing and damage under dynamic loading, to support of rock under dynamic conditions.
