Open AccessDetailed rigid particle models have been proposed for modeling fracture in quasibrittle materials. The rigid particle circular models proposed in the literature do not properly reproduce the known rock friction angle and ...
VGCM3D - a 3D rigid particle model for rock fracture following the voronoi tessellation of the grain structure: formulation and validation Candeias, M.; Monteiro Azevedo, N.; Braga Farinha, M. L. (CIMNE, 2017)
Open AccessDetailed particle models by taking into account the material grain structure explicitly consider the material randomness, including a size limiter for damage localization. A VGMC3D contact model is presented that considers ...
