Discontinuous Deformation Analysis in Rock Mechanics Practice

Featured

Yossef H. Hatzor, Guowei Ma, Gen-hua Shi
July 27, 2017

The numerical, discrete element, Discontinuous Deformation Analysis (DDA) method was developed by Dr. Gen-hua Shi while he was working at the University of California, Berkeley, under the supervision of Prof. Richard E. Goodman in the late 1980s. Two-dimensional DDA was published in 1993 and three-d...

Rock Reinforcement and Rock Support

Ömer Aydan
January 08, 2018

The stability of underground and surface geotechnical structures during and after excavation is of great concern as any kind of instability may result in damage to the environment as well as time-consuming high cost repair work. The forms of instability, their mechanisms and the conditions...

Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design in Weak Rocks

Derek Martin, Peter Stacey
December 08, 2017

Weak rocks encountered in open pit mines cover a wide variety of materials, with properties ranging between soil and rock. As such, they can provide a significant challenge for the slope designer. For these materials, the mass strength can be the primary control in the design of the pit slopes,...
