Rock mechanics in Sweden
Luleå tekniska universitet.
1989 (English)In: International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences & Geomechanics Abstracts, ISSN 0148-9062, E-ISSN 1879-2073, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper reviews rock mechanics research activities in Sweden. A short history of the development of rock mechanics in the mining, underground construction and mining equipment industries is presented. Teaching at Swedish technical universities and activity in research organizations and in the Swedish National Group of the ISRM are outlined. For the next 5-10 yr, most of the applied rock mechanics research will be conducted in the fields of mining and the final disposal of radioactive waste. New fields in the application of rock mechanics are being developed, for example, gas storage in excavations of hard rocks. Tunnel boring in hard rocks, holography for rock monitoring during blasting, physical and numerical modelling of grouting and some new trends in rock stress measurements are presented as examples of present research work within the major research organizations and university departments in Sweden.
