2012-9-25  In many deep underground excavations, strainbursts are the most common rockburst type; they can be mining-induced due to static stress change caused by nearby mining or dynamically-induced due to dynamic stress increase caused by a remote seismic event (called dynamically-induced strainbursts). An example of strainburst damage is shown in Fig. 1.
