The nonlinear elastic function can be derived from strain energy density function [33-35].
The mathematical and the statistical approaches are the Cornell-McGuire approach, the cumulative frequency-magnitude distribution, cumulative strain energy release, part process statistics and others methods.
(2018) researched the evolution of energy stored in the composite coal-rock structure and coal fragments' burst characteristics through the lateral pressure unloading numerical tests, and they concluded that the accumulated strain energy in the coal was greater than that in roof and floor.
A rough rule-of-thumb is to assume that if esthetics deformation carried out on temperature lesser to its one-half M.P it corresponds to cold functioning Mainly the energy depleted in cold work appears in the form of heat but a fixed fraction is stored in the metals as strain energy related with a variety of lattice defects, dislocations, vacancies, formed by the deformation.
In this situation, dynamic rock failure will be induced, triggering the release of elastic strain energy. Therefore, Rockburst occur.
