Experimental Evaluation and Discrete Element Modeling of Shale Delamination Mechanism

Enayatallah Emami Meybodi; Syed Khaliq Hussain; Mohammad Fatehi Marji

Volume 14, Issue 1 , January 2023, , Pages 259-276


  In this research work, X-ray diffraction (XRD) tests and petrographic studies are performed to analyze the mineral composition and lamination in the shale rock specimens. Afterward, point load (PL) and uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) tests are carried out on the anisotropic laminated shale rock. ...  Read More

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 Modeling of Rock Slopes with a Potential of Block-Flexural Toppling Failure

H. Sarfaraz; M. Amini

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 247-259


  One of the most important instabilities of rock slopes is toppling failure. Among the types of toppling failure, block-flexural failures are more common instability which occurs in nature. In this failure, some rock blocks break because of tensile stresses, and some overturn under their weights, and ...  Read More
