Paper Title:
Fracture-Damage Model for Anchored Discontinuous Jointed Rockmass and its Application
  Abstract

According to the theories of fracture mechanics and damage mechanics, the constructive model and fracture damage mechanism of brittle discontinuous jointed rockmass are systematically studied under the state of complex stress in this paper. By the aid of the method of equivalent strain energy, the constitutive relation of anchored brittle discontinuous jointed rockmass is derived under the state of compression-shearing. The constitutive relation under the state of tension-shearing is also developed according to the theory of self-consistence. Finally, based on the above constructive models, the three-dimensional finite element procedure has been developed to model the ground movements that occur when underground power-houses of pumped-storage power station are installed in discontinuous jointed rockmass. The anchor supporting is an important component of this underground power-houses excavation work. Besides the displacement field and the secondary state of stress induced by the excavation disturbance, the effect of anchoring and the damage evolution around the power-houses have been particularly described during the process of installation. The numerical results obtained by numerical simulation were compared with that of field monitoring in order to verify the validity of the proposed models.
