Any real continuum has some point and linear defects; our aim is to study a mechanism of reorganization of the applied stress load due to an influence of defects. Such an influence may be related both to the natural defects and, in the upper crust layers, also those related to the human activity; this is especially important for the mining regions and water dam areas. In general, the defects enhance an effect of stress load and related deformations. In the case an axial stress load is applied, such processes help to understand the formation of shear or rotational micro-fractures; in this way we may better understand the processes recognizing fragmentation and slip motions. Thus, we should account for the appearance of micro-fractures having a quite different character than those related to an external load; such effect may appear due to the role of internal defects existing as an integral element of any natural material. In this way, we may better explain the forwarding...
