Rock dynamics, as a branch of rock mechanics, deals with the responses of rock (materials and masses) under dynamic stress fields, where an increased rate of loading (or impulsive loading) induces a change in the mechanical behaviour of the rock materials and rock masses. Figure 1.1 is an example showing the different failure behaviours for a rock material under static and dynamic loads.
