Rock mass usually consists of multiple, parallel planar joints, known as joint sets, which govern the mechanical behavior of the rock mass. The dynamic behavior and wave propagation across jointed rock masses are of great interest in geophysics, mining and underground constructions. It is also significant to assess the stability and damage of rock structures under dynamic loads. Because of the discontinuity of the joints, the dynamic response of jointed rock masses is a complicated process. It is of significance to develop an efficient and explicit model to represent the dynamic property of the jointed rock mass.
