Under applied stresses, elastic strain energy (UE) will be generated and stored in materials.
The third call will be concentrating on hybrid structures like incorporating rotationally moulded polymers, fibre reinforced composites and/or steel, plus elastomers with a low modulus and an extremely high range of elastic strain.
The concept of intergranular strain assumes that the total strain is composed of a small elastic strain of a layer between the soil grains (intergranular strain) and the strain caused by a mutual shift and rotation of grains.

The sum of the creep strain and elastic strain over the time t + [DELTA]t is the same for all elements, and the sum of the stresses does not change because of the generation of elements.
However, the question still remains as to how to deal with the singularity problem and the answer lies in dealing with the elastic strain energy as opposed to focusing on the stress level.
As the high elastic strain energy accumulated in the rock masses is greater than the energy consumed by rock failure, imbalance of the rock mass structure occurs and the excess energy causes the rock to explode and emitted rock debris", he explained.
