Stability Study on Jointed Rock Mass Affected by Fissure Water Pressure


Article Preview

Joints and fissures have a strong impact on the stability of engineering rock mass. In this paper, a self-improved analysis program of FLAC3D is adopted to study problems in fluid-solid coupling field. Then, by simulating the excavation process of a slope under the effect of fissure water pressure, the crack initiation and propagation in engineering rock mass reappears. Besides, the numerical simulation results are decent and effective, which can provide some references for engineering application.
