Title: Events and discussions - Theme 3. Properties of rocks and rock masses

Abstract

Theme 3, ''Properties of Rocks and Rock Masses,'' brought 92 papers and thus appears to be the principal subject of interest to this congress. Such a large number of papers precludes an individual analysis. However, it allows evaluation of general ideas and tendencies. Three prelimary observations are presented. The first is the necessity to determine as soon as possible the classification of materials or of their behavior so as to obtain comparable properties. The second observation refers to the cost of rock mechanics tests, particular ''in-situ'' tests. The third observation is that, although the title of this theme indicates a general discussion of the properties of rock masses without any particularz examples, all the papers deal with mechanical characteristics, with the single exception of 2 authors who discuss the electric and thermal conductivity of moist and dry rocks. The papers seem to fall into the following categories: in-situ deformability tests, the relationship between static and dynamic moduli of elasticity, in-situ rupture tests, fissuration in rock masses, fissuration in rocks, weathering, properties of rocks in laboratory samples, and anisotropy. (78 refs.)
