Assuming the rock mass as a homogeneous viscoelastic material of Kelvin type, the phenomenological characterisation that brings the specific features of shock waves propagation in rock mass is discussed. The shock wave is created by a sudden impulse at a depth of “h” units below the free surface. Stress distribution at different periods and distances are obtained and shown in the form of graphs. It is observed that the propagation of shock waves becomes more similar to the propagation of a viscous wave in a Newtonian fluid.
