This publication goals to bridge the space among the descriptive equipment of the geologist and the analytical equipment of the rock mechanics engineer as utilized to discontinuity features. It doesn't faux to be the ultimate at the subject, yet quite seeks to clarify purely, simple principles that may be outfitted upon.
