Paper Title:
Three Dimensional Numerical Approach to Splitting Failure of Rock Discs
  Abstract

The Brazilian splitting tests have been commonly and widely used as a standardized test method on disc or cylinder specimens to measure the indirect tensile strength of rocks in mining engineering and other rock engineering. In this paper, a novel numerical code, 3D Rock Failure Process Analysis code, was applied to implement the splitting tensile failure tests on rock discs. The influences of the heterogeneity on stress distribution in rock are also discussed and the splitting failure patterns of specimens subjected to Brazilian tests are simulated. The simulated splitting results of rock discs were found quite realistic, which indicate that the rock failure analysis method is applicable and practical for the study of rock disc splitting failure.
