Dynamics deals with time responses of dynamic load (stress), deformation (strain) and failure (fracturing). Hence, rock dynamics has a wide scope, with topics ranging from stress wave propagation to response of rock materials and masses, and to engineering applications. This keynote is to provide an overview on recent developments on rock dynamic laboratory experiments and numerical modelling. It covers stress wave propagation across a single and a set of filled parallel rock fractures, dynamically induced seismicity, mechanism of rock fracturing, and discontinuous micromechanics modelling of wave propagation and dynamic fracturing.
