Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022, , Pages 693-713


  The noise of drilling in the dimension stone business is unbearable for both the workplace and the people who work there. In order to reduce the negative effects drilling has on the health of the environment, the drilling noise has to be measured, assessed, and controlled. The main purpose of this work ...  Read More

Extended finite element simulation of crack propagation in cracked Brazilian disc

M. Eftekhari; A. Baghbanan; H. Hashemolhosseini

Volume 6, Issue 1 , January 2015, , Pages 95-102


  The cracked Brazilian disc (CBD) specimen is widely used in order to determine mode-I/II and mixed-mode fracture toughness of a rock medium. In this study, the stress intensity factor (SIF) on the crack-tip in this specimen is calculated for various geometrical crack conditions using the extended-finite ...  Read More
