Evaluating the microscale failure response of various weathering grade sandstone based on microscale observation and microstructural modelling subjected to wet and dry cycles

Kausar Sultan shah; Mohd Hazizan bin Mohd Hashim; Hafeez Ur Rehman; Kamar shah bin Ariffin

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 08 June 2022


  The significance of rock failure can be found from the fact that microfracture genesis and coalescence in the rock mass results in macroscale fractures. Rock may fail due to an increase in the local stress, natural fractures, weathering inducing micro-crack genesis, coalescence, and propagation. Therefore, ...  Read More

Application of Stochastic Simulation in Assessing Effect of Particle Morphology on Fracture Characteristics of Sandstone

K. Sultan shah; M. H. bin Mohd Hashim; H. Rehman; K. S. bin Ariffin

Volume 12, Issue 4 , October 2021, , Pages 969-986


  Indirect tensile testing is used in order to investigate the effect of particle morphology (shape and size) on the various weathering grade sandstone fracture characteristics. Several fracture characteristics are discussed in depth in this work including the fracture length (FL), fracture deviation area ...  Read More

Monte Carlo Simulation-Based Uncertainty Integration into Rock Particle Shape Descriptor Distributions

K. Sultan Shah; M. H. Bin Mohd Hashim; K. Sh. Bin Ariffin

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 299-311


  The particles within the rock samples are present in extensive ranges of shapes and sizes, and their characterization and analysis exist with a considerable diversity. The prior research works have appraised the significance of the particle shape types and their effects on the geotechnical structures ...  Read More

A Preliminary Assessment of Rock Slope Stability in Tropical Climates: A Case Study at Lafarge Quarry, Perak, Malaysia

K.S. Shah; M. H. Mohd Hashim; K.S. Ariffin; N. F. Nordin

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 661-673


  The stability analysis of rock slopes is a complex task for the geotechnical engineers due to the complex nature of the rock mass in a tropical climate that often has discontinuities in several forms, and consequently, in several types of slope failures. In this work, a rock mass classification scheme ...  Read More
