The occurrence of rock bursts is very complicated. Its essence is the catastrophic mechanical behavior of a complex large system through its spatiotemporal evolution. Therefore, it is necessary to study the entire process of gestation, development, and initiation of the pressure bumps from a systematic viewpoint and a larger scale. This chapter focuses on a systematical study on the generation and development of rock burst from the angle of energy dissipation. We first introduce the concept of a rock burst activity domain system (RADS) and, based on the concept, deal with the related theory of thermodynamic entropy and entropy change equation. We then analyze the spatiotemporal characteristics of the two-dimensional entropy change and energy dissipation. At last, we discuss the evolution process of the main RADS (MRADS) based on the dissipative structure theory.
