A simple guide to calculate the Hoek-Brown Failure Criteria in Python
Rock masses usually reduces the strength of the intact rock due to the presence of discontinuities. Engineers and geologists must take this effect into account to predict failure in slope faces and tunnel excavations. In this post, I will take you through the process of calculating the Hoek-Brown Failure Criteria in Python.
