This communication assesses the applicability of finite element techniques in analyzing rockbursting. Rockbursting is assumed to be a phenomemon of surface instability. It is treated by applying numerical techniques similar to those used to address the buckling problems of structural dynamics. The proposed approach, which is general enough to be applied to most boundary value problems encountered in engineering practice, is in the case of a simple boundary value problem - the wedge test. -Author
