Stability Analysis of Salt Cavern Gas Storage Using 2D Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical Finite-Element Software

A. Asgari; A. Ramezanzadeh; Seyed M. E. Jalali; B. Brouard

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 77-97


  Ensuring the stability and integrity of underground gas storage salt caverns is a very complicated subject due to the non-linear and time-dependent behavior of rock salts under complicated thermal and mechanical loading conditions. For this reason, pressure and temperature fluctuations in the caverns ...  Read More

Probabilistic analysis of stability of chain pillars in Tabas coal mine in Iran using Monte Carlo simulation

M. Najafi; Seyed M. E. Jalali; F. Sereshki; A. Yarahmadi Bafghi

Volume 7, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 25-35


  Performing a probabilistic study rather than a determinist one is a relatively easy way to quantify the uncertainty in an engineering design. Due to the complexity and poor accuracy of the statistical moment methods, the Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) method is wildly used in an engineering design. In ...  Read More

3D stochastic rock fracture modeling related to strike-slip faults

M. Noroozi; R. Kakaie; Seyed M. E Jalali

Volume 6, Issue 2 , July 2015, , Pages 169-181


  Fault zones and fault-related fracture systems control the mechanical behaviors and fluid-flow properties of the Earth’s crust. Furthermore, nowadays, modeling is being increasingly used in order to understand the behavior of rock masses, and to determine their characteristics. In this work, fault ...  Read More

Numerical modeling of the effects of joint hydraulic aperture, orientation and spacing on rock grouting using UDEC: A case study of Bakhtiary Dam of Iran

Omid Saeidi; Ahmad Ramezanzadeh; Farhang Sereshki; Seyed Mohammad Esmaeil Jalali

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2013, , Pages 15-26


  This study aims at presenting a numerical model for predicting grout flow and penetration length into the jointed rock mass using Universal Distinct Element Code (UDEC). The numerical model is validated using practical data and analytical method for grouting process. Input data for the modeling, including ...  Read More

Development of a new creep testing equipment to obtain long-term deformation parameters of salt rocks

S.M.A Hosseini; F Sereshki; M Shariati; S.M.E Jalali; F Crotogino

Volume 3, Issue 1 , January 2012, , Pages 27-32


  Creep phenomenon in rock engineering plays a key role in development of underground spaces as they must be stable enough for a long period of time. Current research involved designing and manufacturing of a new creep testing machine. The equipment is capable to perform simultaneous light-duty creep tests ...  Read More
