In this paper we investigate nonlinear models for rock failure data.
The complexities of estimation and analysis using sample experimental data are
studied when fitting a power-law type model. Both the high frequency of sampling
of observations during the experiment, as well as the nature of the model with
high levels of correlation of the parameter estimators result in some challenging
issues in the modelling.
