Bedded rock

From WebRef.org
Jump to navigationJump to search

One of the two subdivisions of competent rock. To be classed as bedded rock, the rock within each bed, in addition to being elastically perfect, isotropic, and homogeneous, must have a bed thickness that is small compared with the roof span, and the bond between beds must be weak. Most sedimentary rocks and some stratified metamorphic rocks fall in this group.
