Sensitivity Analysis of Stress and Cracking in Rock Mass Blasting using Numerical Modelling

M.A. Chamanzad; M. Nikkhah

Volume 11, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 1141-1155


  Drilling and blasting have numerous applications in the civil and mining engineering. Due to the two major components of rock masses, namely the intact rock matrix and the discontinuities, their behavior is a complicated process to be analyzed. The purpose of this work is to investigate the effects of ...  Read More

Rock Mechanics
A new approach for assessing stability of rock slopes considering centroids of weak zones

A. Turanboy; E. Ülker; C. B. Küçüksütçü

Volume 9, Issue 1 , January 2018, , Pages 1-18


  The intersection lines between discontinuity surfaces and their intersection points on the visible surfaces of any engineering structure may be the instability indicators. This paper describes a new approach to modelling the intersecting lines and points that would provide the first evaluation of any ...  Read More

Estimating the deformation modulus of jointed rock mass under multilateral loading condition using analytical methods

M Ebadi; Saeed Karimi Nasab; H Jalalifar

Volume 2, Issue 2 , July 2011, , Pages 146-156


  rnDetermination of rock mass deformation modulus is very important in different projects, especially in civil and mining engineering works. In-situ measurements such as dilatometer, plate load and flat jack methods may be applied to determine the deformation modulus. However, these methods are very expensive ...  Read More
