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

Numerical analysis of energy transmission through discontinuities and fillings in Kangir Dam

A. Siamaki; H. Bakhshandeh Amnieh

Volume 7, Issue 2 , July 2016, , Pages 251-259


  A considerable amount of energy is released in the form of shock wave from explosive charge detonation. Shock wave energy is responsible for the creation of crushing and fracture zone around the blast hole. The rest of the shock wave energy is transferred to rock mass as ground vibration. Ground vibration ...  Read More

Prediction of the deformation modulus of rock masses using Artificial Neural Networks and Regression methods

Javad Gholamnejad; HamidReza Bahaaddini; Morteza Rastegar

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2013, , Pages 35-43


  Static deformation modulus is recognized as one of the most important parameters governing the behavior of rock masses. Predictive models for the mechanical properties of rock masses have been used in rock engineering because direct measurement of the properties is difficult due to time and cost constraints. ...  Read More
