2015Lu M, Wang S, Sloan SW, Sheng D, Xie K, 'Nonlinear consolidation of vertical drains with coupled radial-vertical flow considering well resistance', Geotextiles and Geomembranes, 43 182-189 (2015)

The consolidation behavior of ground with vertical drains is known to be greatly affected by the finite permeability of the sand drains, also called the effect of well resistance. However, up to now, no analytical methods have been reported for evaluating this effect on the nonlinear consolidation behavior of vertical drains. In this paper, by considering the nonlinear compressibility and permeability of soil during consolidation, the effect of well resistance was incorporated into the derivation of the equations that govern the nonlinear consolidation of a vertical drain with coupled radial-vertical flow. In addition, the smear effect was considered by assuming three decay patterns for the radial permeability coefficients of the soil toward the sand drain in the smeared zone. After obtaining the governing equations, a simplified analytical solution is derived for a general time-variable surcharge loading. Based on the general solution obtained, detailed solutions are provided for three special types of loading schemes: constant loading, single-stage loading, and multi-stage loading. The validity of the solution is verified by reducing it to several special cases and comparing these to existing solutions. Finally, the effect of the well resistance, the ratios of the compression index to the radial and vertical permeability indices, various loading schemes, and various variation patterns of the radial permeability coefficient of the soil in the smeared soil zone are investigated using parametric analysis.

2015Zhang HQ, Tannant DD, Jing HW, Nunoo S, Niu SJ, Wang SY, 'Evolution of cohesion and friction angle during microfracture accumulation in rock', Natural Hazards, (2015)

The creation of microfractures within rock is commonly observed as rock is strained. The presence of these microfractures constitutes damage to the rock, and this damage can reduce the rock¿s strength. This paper explores the evolution of rock strength as microfractures within a rock accumulate. Two approaches involving different laboratory tests are used to study how cohesion and internal friction evolve during progressive damage to rock. The mobilized cohesion and friction angle are measured for intact and damaged rock specimens. Intact rock specimens tested under compression were used to determine the peak values of cohesion and friction angle for two types of rock. Specimens of rock with varying amounts of accumulated microfracture damage were tested under direct shear or multi-stage triaxial compression to measure the Coulomb strength parameters for damaged rock. The laboratory testing shows that cohesion decreases with strain as the rock accumulates internal damage caused by microfracturing before the peak strength. The frictional component of the rock strength starts to be mobilized as strain causes internal microfractures. The mobilized internal friction angle increases up to and slightly beyond the peak strength. A small amount of post-peak strain is required to initiate macroscopic slip surfaces, and until these are created, high frictional resistance is mobilized between the many interacting and interlocked pieces of rock in the test specimen. With further post-peak strain, the friction angle decreases as the macroscopic slip surfaces in the rock become well established.

2015Liu X, Wang S, Wang S, Wang E, 'Fluid-driven fractures in granular materials', Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment, (2015)

The initiation and propagation process of a fluid-driven fracture in granular materials is inherently a hydro-mechanical coupling problem. The bonded-particle method (BPM) was utilised to simulate the hydraulic fracturing process in granular materials, and different failure mechanisms were evaluated by analysing the formation of microcracks. Hydraulic conductivity is determined by pore size and connectivity in the direction of flow. A strain-dependent formulation was presented to highlight the inherent link between hydraulic conductivity and pore size. The results show that the BPM is capable of realistically predicting fluid-driven fractures in granular material. Using the BPM, the numbers of fluid-driven fractures induced by different failure modes can be determined. It is concluded that for consolidated formations, the initiation and propagation of fluid-driven fractures are dominated by tensile failure, which has been recognised in the field of geology and geomechanics. However, for unconsolidated formations, shear failure seems to be more important during the hydraulic fracturing process. As described in this article, the number of shear failure cracks is twice that of tension failure cracks, which has not been widely recognised. Overall, the simulation results of the fluid-driven fracture are in accordance with the experimental data observed by other researchers.

2015Lu M-M, Xie K-H, Wang S-Y, '1-D consolidation of a single soil layer with depth-dependent stress by multi-stage loading', Yantu Gongcheng Xuebao/Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering, 37 327-336 (2015)

In geotechnical engineering, when the strength of soft soils is relatively low, a rapid loading rate can lead to ground failure. In this situation, a multi-stage loading scheme can be utilized to achieve higher soil strength by consolidating the soil layer to a certain degree before applying the next, larger load(s). Additionally, the total stress in the soil layer usually varies, and, in many cases, this variation is not uniform with depth, for example, when the loading is applied within a small area over a thick soil layer. In this study, a thorough, explicit analytical solution is presented for the consolidation of a single soil layer using a multi-stage loading with depth-dependent total stress. The particular case of a two-stage loading scheme is selected to investigate the consolidation behavior of a soil layer. Finally, the convergence of the analytical solution is assessed by comparing the calculated results using the various terms of the series to facilitate the use of the solution by engineers and to provide sufficient accuracy.

Rock strength is generally divided into the components of cohesion and internal friction. These components are two important parameters for estimating the damaged or disturbed zone around an excavation and its corresponding support design. However, the cohesive and frictional strength components at the same strain increment before peak strength are difficult to separate from each other. In addition, the misperception of their mutual evolution has been in existence for a long time. A numerical code, Rock Failure Process Analysis (RFPA2D), based on the finite element method was used in this study to clarify this misperception. The RFPA2D approach can account for rock heterogeneity and capture the entire rock failure process without prior assumptions regarding where and how microcracks and fracturing develop. Numerical models of rock were copied and reused in uniaxial and biaxial tests to create identical heterogeneous models for use under different confining stress conditions. Forty-five numerical tests (5 homogeneity indexes × 9 confining pressures) were used to calculate the results of the principal stresses (s1 and s3) at specified increments of axial strain. The intercept and the slope of a linear line fitting to the principal stresses at the same strain before peak strength were obtained in the principal stress space. The intercept is related to the cohesive strength component of the shear resistance, and the slope of the linear line is a pseudo-internal friction coefficient. Through the analysis of the linear fitting results, it has been found that the cohesive strength component increases while the pseudo-internal friction coefficient decreases with increasing homogeneity index of the numerical rock models. The values of cohesion and internal friction vary as a function of the strain state, and they are immediately activated with a strain increment before peak strength. The research results strengthen the understanding of the mobilization of the load-bearing capacity of rock mass surrounding an opening and can improve the design of practical support systems.

The creep deformation behavior of the northern slope of an open-pit mine is introduced. Direct shear creep tests are then conducted for the samples taken from the northern slope to study the rheological characteristics of the rock mass. The experimental results are analyzed afterwards using an empirical method to develop a rheological model for the rock mass. The proposed rheological model is finally applied to understand the creep behavior of the northern slope, predict the long-term stability, and guide appropriate measures to be taken at suitable times to increase the factor of safety to ensure stability. Through this study, a failure criterion is proposed to predict the long-term stability of the slope based on the rheological characteristics of the rock mass and a critical deformation rate is adopted to determine when appropriate measures should be taken to ensure slope stability. The method has been successfully applied for stability analysis and engineering management of the toppling and slippage of the northern slope of the open-pit mine. This success in application indicates that it is theoretically accurate, practically feasible, and highly cost-effective.

2013Wang SY, Sloan SW, Tang CA, 'Three-Dimensional Numerical Investigations of the Failure Mechanism of a Rock Disc with a Central or Eccentric Hole', Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, 47 2117-2137 (2013)

The diametrical compression of a circular disc (Brazilian test) or cylinder with a small eccentric hole is a simple but important test to determine the tensile strength of rocks. This paper studies the failure mechanism of circular disc with an eccentric hole by a 3D numerical model (RFPA3D). A feature of the code RFPA3D is that it can numerically simulate the evolution of cracks in three-dimensional space, as well as the heterogeneity of the rock mass. First, numerically simulated Brazilian tests are compared with experimental results. Special attention is given to the effect of the thickness to radius ratio on the failure modes and the peak stress of specimens. The effects of the compressive strength to tensile strength ratio (C/T), the loading arc angle (2a), and the homogeneity index (m) are also studied in the numerical simulations. Secondly, the failure process of a rock disc with a central hole is studied. The effects of the ratio of the internal hole radius (r) to the radius of the rock disc (R) on the failure mode and the peak stress are investigated. Thirdly, the influence of the vertical and horizontal eccentricity of an internal hole on the initiation and propagation of cracks inside a specimen are simulated. The effect of the radius of the eccentric hole and the homogeneity index (m) are also investigated.

In this paper, a coupled thermal-mechanical-damage model, Material Failure Process Analysis for Thermo code (abbreviated as MFPA-thermo), was applied to investigate the formation, extension and coalescence of cracks in FRCs, caused by the thermal mismatch of the matrix and the particles under uniform temperature variations. The effects of the thermal mismatch between the matrix and fibers on the stress distribution and crack development were also numerically studied. The influences of the material heterogeneity, the failure patterns of FRCs at varied temperatures are simulated and compared with the experimental results in the present paper. The results show that the mechanisms of thermal damage and fracture of the composite remarkedably depend on the difference between the coefficients of thermal expansion of the fibers and the matrix on a meso-scale. Meanwhile, the simulations indicate that the thermal cracking of the FRCs at uniform varied temperatures is an evolution process from diffused damage, nucleation, and finally linkage of cracks.

2007Yu XJ, Fang Z, Yin JH, Wang SY, Yan Y, 'Numerical modelling of soft soil installed by PVDs', Key Engineering Materials, 340-341 II 1249-1254 (2007)

One small-scale physical model test on the PVD (Prefabricated Vertical Drain) treated Hong Kong marine clay was simulated using finite element method (FEM) in this study. A User MATerial (UMAT) subroutine describing an Elastic Visco-Plastic (EVP) constitutive model was developed and incorporated into one commercial finite element code ABAQUS. A degressive permeability of the PVD strip was included to consider variations of its permeability during the consolidation process. The UMAT and the adopted reducing technique were demonstrated to be effective by good agreement between the observed consolidation settlement and excess pore water pressures and the simulated ones.

A series of numerical model tests were performed to investigate the behaviour of the anisotropic rock surrounding circular excavations under high confining pressures. The aim was to provide information on the formation of fractures and failure around deep level rock tunnels under controlled conditions. Solid cubes containing a circular hole were confined to a vertical pressure with same as the confinement in the horizontal directions. In this modeling, the inhomogeneous rock is generated by using Weibull parameters which are related to the microstructural properties determined by crack size distribution and grain size. The fracture angle is assumed to be 45°. The observed failure zone around the excavation was simulated using both the maximum tensile strain criterion and Mohr-Coulomb criterion respectively (as the damage threshold). And RFPA (Realistic Failure Process Analysis) code was used as the calculating tool in this modelling, three opening modes are simulated and compared. Computational model predictions that include crack propagation and failure modes of rock show a good agreement with those of the observation in site. It is pointed out that the damage evolution of EDZ strongly depends on the inhomogeneous, the excavation mode, anisotropic property, and the various loading conditions. Concerning the existence of a weak plane, the amount of displacement at the side wall of the tunnel was quite large, since the shear deformation occurred in EDZ. The model is implemented in RFPA code and is able to represent the change in fracture patterns between the solid and jointed parts. This provides confidence for the application of the numerical model to the design of rock tunnels at great depth.

Soil nailing is a widely used technique for stabilizing slopes and excavations. In all current design methods, the nail-soil interface shear strength, that is, the pull-out resistance of a soil nail is an important parameter which controls the design and safety assessment of the soil nailing system. The pressure grouting is a cost effective method for increasing the soil nail pull-out resistance and in turn improving the performance of the nailed structure. In this paper, a three dimensional (3-D) finite element (FE) model for pull-out tests is established and verified by comparing simulated results with measured data. This model is then used to simulate the effect of grouting pressure on the soil nail pull-out resistance.

In this paper, a Material Failure Process Analysis code (MFPA) was employed to investigate the interaction of end effect zone of specimen with the wing crack propagation inside the brittle specimen containing pre-existing flaws under uniaxial compression comparing with the experimental results. The numerical results show that the shorter the distance between the pre-existing flaw and the specimen's end, the slower the crack propagation process and the shorter wing propagation length is, and vice versa. In addition, the end effect zone was also influenced by the wing crack propagation.

An Elastic Plastic-Damage (EPD) model is developed to model the softening behaviour of the cement-soil admixture based on continuous damage mechanics. The softening behaviour is considered to be characteristic outcome of the material degradation due to damage in material. Material degradation is modelled by reducing progressively the stiffness and yield stress of the material when the damage variable has attained a critical index. The basic equations of the model are derived and presented. A Fortran program for this model has been developed and implemented into a finite element code ABAQUS. In order to evaluate the applicability of this model, several unconfined compression tests are simulated using ABAQUS with this model. The computed results are compared with measured data and good agreement is achieved.

In numerical simulation of engineering problems, it is important to properly simulate the interface between two adjacent parts of the model. In finite element method, there are generally three methods for simulating interface problems: interface element method, surface based contact method and the method by using a thin layer of continuum elements. In this paper, simulation of interface problems is conducted using continuum elements and surface based contact methods. The results from each method are presented and compared with each other.

Laboratory compact grouting was performed using a modified triaxial test on Hong Kong CDG (completely decomposed granite) soils to investigate the effect of effective confining pressure and grout injection rate on the compact grouting effect. In this study, compaction grouting was simulated by expanding a latex balloon inside a triaxial sample using de-aired water. When the balloon is expanded, it first needs to overcome the effect of the confining pressure of the soil; further expansion will compact and density the surrounding soil. The compact grouting effect can be control by measuring the total void ratio change during injection and the following consolidation. The injection rate was controlled by a GDS using a volume control technique. The results of the experiments showed that the effective confining pressure on soil specimen plays an important role in the effect of compaction grouting, and the injection rate has an effect on the rate of excess pore pressure dissipation but minor effect on soil density. © 2007 Taylor & Francis Group.

2006Wang SY, Lam KC, Au SK, Tang CA, Zhu WC, Yang TH, 'Analytical and numerical study on the pillar rockbursts mechanism', Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, 39 445-467 (2006)

Based on cusp-type catastrophe theory, a sample rock-rock model for studying the pillar rockburst mechanism is presented in this paper. It is shown that the stiffness ratio, K, of the roof and floor to the pillar plays an important role in the outbreak of instability. Additionally, simple formulae for the deformation jump and the energy release are derived. Based on the assumption that there exists a proportional relationship between the number of microseismic events and microfractured elements, the theoretical microseismic event rate produced by the double rock sample, loaded in series under uniaxial compression, is obtained. Using a newly developed numerical code, RFPA 2D, the progressive failure process and associated microseismic behavior of the twin rock samples are simulated, which shows that the spatial distribution of microseismic events develops progressively from disorder at the initial loading stage to order prior to the main shock. The numerically simulated results also confirm that a soft roof and floor promote an unstable failure or collapse of pillars, while a stiff roof and floor can lead to a stable failure of pillars. Additionally, the simulated results reproduce the deformation jump and the energy release that occur during a pillar rockburst. It is demonstrated that the proposed model properly simulates the pillar failure process. © Springer-Verlag 2006.

Rock is a very heterogeneous material, containing various types of weaknesses such as gain boundaries, pores, and cracks and other defects. When rock is subjected to surrounding loading or the increase of hydraulic pressure due to rainstorm, the pre-existing fractures will initiate or propagate at the point of least resistance, which may cause failure of the entire structure of slope, dam and so on. By using Flow-Rock Failure Process Analysis code, F-RFPA2D. Firstly, a numerical simulation and similar materials experiment on rock samples with two pre-existing cracks without hydraulic pressure were conducted to investigate the initiation, propagation, coalescence of cracks and failure mechanism of rock considering the heterogeneity of rock; secondly, another sample with two pre-existing cracks subjected to hydraulic pressure under the loading conditions of different k0 is used to investigate the behavior of hydraulic fractures evolution, and their coupling action. Numerical results reproduce the process of pre-existing cracking evolution process which agreed with the experimental results.

Many stiff clays forming part of natural slopes and earth dams exist in the fissured state. When these cracks are subjected to gravity induced normal and shear stresses they may propagate. The present discussion presents a numerical method to study the propagation direction of cracks under stress fields similar to those found in the field. Not only did the results on one crack propagation direction obtained from the numerical method and the analytical results agree well, but numerical results have been used to investigate the mechanisms of the whole process of two horizontal cracks initiation and propagation and coalescence in stiff soils.

2006Zhu W, Duan J, Tang C, Wang S, 'Digital image based simulation on failure process of heterogeneous brittle materials', Key Engineering Materials, 324-325 I 315-318 (2006)

Rock and concrete are typical heterogeneous material that the meso-scale heterogeneity may have a significant effect on their macro-scale mechanical responses. In this work, a digital image-based (DIB) technique is employed to characterize and quantify the heterogeneity of concrete, and the obtained data is directly imported into a numerical code named RFPA (Rock Failure Process Analysis) to study the effect of heterogeneity on the failure process of concrete. The upgraded RFPA is capable to simulate the progressive failure of brittle materials such as rock and concrete, representing both the growth of existing fractures and the formation of new fractures, obviating the need to identify crack tips and their interaction expl icitly. The simulated results are in reasonable agreement with experimental measurements and phenomenological observations reported in previous studies.

Disastrous rock slope failures have been posing a hazard to people's lives and causing enormous economic losses worldwide. Numerical simulation of rock slope failure can lead to improve the degree of understand of such phenomenon so as to predict and avoid the occurrence of these disastrous events. In order to simulate the global behaviors of rock slope failure under the high seepage pressure and the local behaviors of the occurrence of hydraulic fracture in the pre-existing rock joints effectively, a powerful finite element tools F-RFPA2D, is adopted. The simulation takes into account of the growth of existing fractures and the initiation of new fractures under various of hydraulic pressure in different heterogeneities medium. The behavior of fluid flow and damage evolution, and their coupling action are studied in small specimens that are subjected to both hydraulic and biaxial compressive loadings. The influence of the ratio (the initial horizontal stress to the initial vertical stress) and the distance between the two existing cracks on the fracture propagation behaviors are investigated. Moreover, based on the fundamental study of hydraulic fracture, the progressive failure of rock slope under the influence of the increase in hydraulic pressure was also studied in the paper.

2005Wang SY, Au SK, Lam KC, Tang CA, 'Numerical study of elastic-brittle failure of notched openings in rocks', Key Engineering Materials, 297-300 IV 2605-2611 (2005)

Borehole breakout is the process by which portions of borehole or tunnel wall fracture or spall when subjected to compressive stresses. The stress-strain characteristics of rock during loading and unloading confining pressure are studied firstly. To overcome the difficulties in analytical model studies, a numerical code, RFPA2D (Rock Failure Process Analysis), developed by CRISR, Northeastern University, China, is used to investigate the progressive failure of breakout around tunnel. The heterogeneity of rock was also taken into account in the software. The numerical simulation reproduces the formation notch in rocks by the growth, interaction and coalescence of randomly distributed macrocracks. It is illustrated from the numerical simulated results that breakout direction of tunnel is parallel with the minor stress tensor in the plane perpendicular to the borehole axis. Specifically due to the inclusion of heterogeneity, some peculiarities are studied both in the evolution of fracture and the influence of borehole on the peak intensity of specimen as well as the AE event patterns.

2005Wang SY, Au SK, Lam KC, Tang CA, 'Numerical study on the fracture evolution around cavities in rock', Key Engineering Materials, 297-300 IV 2598-2604 (2005)

By using numerical code RFPA2D (Rock Failure Process Analysis), the evolution of fracture around cavities subjected to uniaxial and polyaxial compression is examined through a series of model simulation. It is shown from the numerical results that the chain of events leading to the collapse of the cavity may involve all or some of the fractures designated as primary tensile, shear and remote fracture. Numerical simulated results reproduce the evolution of three types of fractures. Under the condition of no confining pressure, the tensile mode dominates with collapse coinciding with the sudden and explosive appearance of the secondary tensile fracture; at moderate higher confining pressure, the tensile mode is depressed, comparatively, the shear effect is strengthened. Nevertheless, tensile fractures especially in remote fractures stage still play a role; at higher pressure, the shear fracture dominates the remote fractures, In addition, the evolution and interact of fractures between multiple cavities is investigated, considering the stress redistribution and transference in compressive and tensile stress field.
