(AEDIFICATIO PUBLISHERS, 2009)
Restricted access - publisher's policySome of the details of EPB tunnelling are difficult to introduce in conventional numerical models, nevertheless there are some parameters that can be included in the analyses in a fairly easy way. The EPB operating ...
Modeling of surface wear by the particle finite element method: application to tunneling processes (2009)
Open AccessThis work introduces the advances in the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) for the modeling of contact and wear between solid materials. The PFEM is an original conjunction of solution strategies. The method has its ...
Rock bolt behaviour in stress-fractured ground: a FE analysis using zero-thickness interface elements and fracture-based constitutive laws (2016)
Restricted access - publisher's policyA finite element analysis using zero-thickness interface elements of the Goodman type, which incorporate a fracture mechanics-based mixed-mode constitutive law, is presented to study stress-induced cracking and spalling ...
