Abstract [en]

The main results from the Fennoscandian Rock Stress Data Base (FRSDB) are presented. It is suggested that ridge push from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is the major stress-generating mechanism. The scatter in stress magnitude and direction for Fennoscandia is due to the change in the stress field near faults. This is illustrated by means of simple 2-dimensional distinct element analyses of blocky rock masses subjected to a homogeneous far-field stress regime. Earthquakes are assumed to appear at fault intersections where stresses are concentrated
