Title: Re-examination of the In Situ Stress Measurements on the 240 Level of the AECL’s URL Using Tensor-Based Approaches

Abstract

In situ stress is an important parameter in rock mechanics and often displays significant variability in fractured rock masses. Therefore, rigorous statistical approaches for stress variability characterisation are essential components and prerequisites for adequate interpretation of stress measurements. However, currently in rock mechanics, stresses are customarily processed by analysing the principal stress magnitude and orientation separately. As previous works show, these customary scalar/vector approaches violate the tensorial nature of stress and may yield erroneous results.
