The paper offers a procedure of creating equivalent models of inhomogeneous, viscoelastic and block rock masses based on the probabilistic approach and concept of physical volume of an inhomogeneous medium. The numerical experiments on representative structures of rock masses have shown a good correspondence between the results obtained with the accurate and equivalent models.

The regularities and mechanisms of acoustic emission in gypseous rocks under heating are considered. Experimental data are interpreted by the thermal gravimetrical and differential thermal analyses. The applicability of thermoacoustic effects to identifying gypseous rocks and evaluating percentage of different minerals in them is verified.

The paper describes an approach to finding the maximum and minimum destruction time of an open or underground structural element under creep in the case of the plane-strain state of a rock mass, by an inelastic creep model. Using the elastic creep model, the author is solving problems on deformation and failure of a cylindrical excavation and a spherical cavity under the action of hydrostatic rock pressure. The times of the failure origin and of the complete failure of structural elements under the long-term stress have been determined.

The authors report measurement data on seismic waves in bulk blasting at quarries by using new high-precise electronic and pyrotechnic blasting systems. It is proved that both systems are efficient, intensity of seismic waves is much lower in large-scale bulk blasting. The authors implemented numerical modeling of seismic wave propagation under a short-delay bulk blast at a quarry. Influence of the blast delay parameters and their precision on the maximum level of seismic vibrations has been studied, and their optimal ranges have been established.

A model of an elastic medium «specimen» is described. Dissipative elements of the model are presented by isolated closed disk cracks. Movement of the crack edges under varying stress state of the specimen is considered in the context of temperature variations on the specimen surface. The temperature variations in the specimen under uniaxial loading are estimated as functions of the crack radii and crack concentration. Comparison of the estimates with the experimental data makes it possible to conclude that they can be identified by the infrared radiometry methods. It is pointed out that this model is applicable to assessing the structural heterogeneity degree in geomaterials.

The negative consequences on TBM performances caused by an insufficiently complete and detailed «geo» characterization of the rock masses that have to be bored are discussed in the paper taking into account the possible ground probing operations in a TBM bored tunnel and the ground treatment techniques to be carried out ahead of the face that can be applied to make the construction of a bored tunnel feasible when limiting or prohibitive conditions for a TBM, must be faced. A description of some relevant and inspiring projects of TBM bored tunnels in rock where ground probing and treatments were used are also presented and discussed.tic approach and concept of physical volume of an inhomogenous medium. The numerical experiments on representative structures of rock masses have shown a good correspondence between the results obtained with the accurate and equivalent models.

The paper describes a multichannel measurement unit for pitwall state monitoring. A number of such measurement units combined provide the extensional monitoring with data transfer to a data acquisition and processing center situated on the open pit surface. Using message relay points allows the information transmission from any difficult-to-access site of open pits.
