Abstract: The mechanical behaviour of a rock mass is described in this paper using a method that combines experimental and numerical techniques. A new discontinuity (joint) constitutive model is proposed based on the non-associative yield law. Constitutive relationships for an anisotropic rock mass are determined by introducing an interaction between sets of discontinuities and the monolith in which they occur. The model is based on the concept that deformation of the monolith and its associated sets of discontinuities are coupled. An experimental investigation of the concrete foundations of the Bogovina Dam on the Crni Timok River in Serbia has been used to verify the presented numerical model. The tests included discontinuity and monolith sample investigations and large-scale field tests. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
