Description RocLab (1.0) is a software program for determining rock mass strength parameters, based on the latest version of the generalized Hoek-Brown failure criterion, allowing users to obtain estimates of rock mass properties, and to visualize the effects of changing rock mass parameters, on the failure envelopes. One of the major obstacles encountered in the field of numerical modeling for rock mechanics, is the problem of data input for rock mass properties. The usefulness of elaborate constitutive models, and powerful numerical analysis programs, is greatly limited, if the analyst does not have reliable input data for rock mass properties. The latest version of the Hoek-Brown failure criterion goes a long way toward remedying this situation. The calculations in the program, are based on the latest version of the Generalized Hoek-Brown failure criterion, as detailed in the paper: Hoek, E., Carranza-Torres, C.T., and Corkum, B. (2002), Hoek-Brown failure criterion - 2002 edition. Proc. North American Rock Mechanics Society meeting in Toronto in July 2002. The reference is provided in PDF format with the program.
