APPLICATION OF THE DISTINCT ELEMENT METHOD FOR ROCK MECHANICS PROBLEMS

APPLICATION OF THE DISTINCT ELEMENT METHOD FOR ROCK MECHANICS PROBLEMS Some aspects of the distinct element method DEM are reviewed. A model for fully grouted reinforcement subjected to axial andor shear forces is proposed. The modelling of some rock mechanics problems, by incorporating the reinforcement model into the DEM is presented. A general discussion on the application of the DEM in rock mechanics, and some of the difficulties that may be encountered, based on the author's experience, are also included. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Engineering Computations Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Some aspects of the distinct element method DEM are reviewed. A model for fully grouted reinforcement subjected to axial andor shear forces is proposed. The modelling of some rock mechanics problems, by incorporating the reinforcement model into the DEM is presented. A general discussion on the application of the DEM in rock mechanics, and some of the difficulties that may be encountered, based on the author's experience, are also included.
