Publisher Summary This chapter reviews the test techniques and major results about the mechanical, hydraulic, and thermal properties of rock joints. Starting with an introduction to the joint roughness, the normal loading-unloading tests, direct shear tests under constant normal stiffness or stresses, and the rotary shear tests with hollow cylindrical samples are reviewed. The coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical behavior of rock joint fluid flow during laboratory tests is described. A comparison amo...
