The critical equilibrium in fragmented rock bodies at macroscopic and microscopic scales is studied. The experimentally identified rotation of particles in belts where rock deformation occurs must be analyzed by the techniques of micromechanics, which, in addition to the average displacement, also consider the kinematically independent rotation of individual fragments, and thus take into account the asymmetric stress component.
