A METHOD OF MODELING TIME-DEPENDENT ROCK DAMAGE

Underground excavations produce damaged zones surrounding the excavations which have disturbed hydrologic and geomechanical properties. Prediction of fluid flow in these zones must consider both the mechanical and fluid flow processes. Presented here is a methodology which utilizes a mechanical model to predict damage and dis-

Numerical Characterization of the Excavation Damaged Zone

Excavation of galleries, tunnels, and shafts in a waste repository inevitably causes disturbance and shifting of nearby host rock as the rock readjusts to the altered local stress regime. The properties of this excavation damaged zone (EDZ) around tunnels have become increasingly important to the performance assessment of nuclear waste

PFC/FLAC Coupled Numerical Simulation of Excavation Damage

In the present study, a coupled numerical method is used to study EDZ (excavation damage zone) in a deep schist tunnel. Two codes, Fast Lagrangian Analysis of Continua (FLAC) and Particle Flow Code (PFC) are coupled to implement the simulation. The motive to apply the FLAC/PFC coupled approach is to take advantage of each modeling scheme while at the same time …

Assessment of excavation damaged zone using a

Assessment of excavation damaged zone using a micromechanics model. It is well known that acoustic emission (AE) and microseismic (MS) events are indicators of rock fracturing or damage as the rock is brought to failure at high stress. By capturing the microseismic events, underground excavation induced rock mass degradation or damage can be

Feb 16, 2014 · Choosing a suitable method for the assessment of excavation damage zone (EDZ) is very important in the economy, stability, and safety because the EDZ affects the behavior of rock mass surrounding the underground spaces, which reduces the stability and safety factor of the underground structure. In this study, the fuzzy analytical hierarchy process was used to …
