Abstract
  In this work, the effect of rock bolt angle on the shear behavior of Rock Bridges is investigated using the particle flow code in two dimensions (PFC2D) for three different Rock Bridge lengths. Firstly, the calibration of PF2D is performed to reproduce the gypsum sample. Then the numerical models with ...  Read More

Behavior of a Tunnel and its Neighboring Joint with and without Presence of Rock Bolt under Biaxial Loads; Particle Flow Code Approach

V. Sarfarazi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 855-864

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2020.9581.1872

Abstract
  In this work, the interaction between the semi-circular space and the neighboring joint with and without the presence of rock bolts was investigated using the particle flow code (PFC) approach. For this purpose, firstly, the calibration of PFC was performed using both the Brazilian experimental test ...  Read More
