Back Analysis on Mechanical Deformation Parameters of Columnar Jointed Rock Mass
The rock mass with polycrystalline aggregates is common geomaterial in civil and architectural engineering as well as hydraulic and hydro-power engineering. For this kind of geometerials, the study on the joint deformation parameters Kn and Ks and the calculation method are not enough so far. Focusing on the rock mechanics and engineering problems of columnar jointed rock mass related to Baihetan hydropower project, analytical models and numerical method based on 3DEC are employed to study the mechanical parameters. The joint deformation parameters Kn and Ks are back analysis using GRNN and the field data of load-bearing plate tests. The application shows that the calculation results are in good accordance with in-situ test results.
