Numerical Simulation on Effect of Lateral Pressure Coefficient on Stress Distribution around Circular Roadway
Based on the heterogeneity of rock, by using the RFPA2D, influene of the horizontal in-situ stresses on the distributions of plastic zones is discussed. The deformation and nonlinear gradual failure characteristics of circular roadway in deep rock mass as well as the displacement and the stress variation of the key position in the periphery of the roadway were analyzed, When λ>1, the plastic area was large-scale, but deflection more little , when λ<1, the plastic area was little-scale, but deflection increase. The study indicates that the stress concentration occurs in the periphery of the roadway after evacuation and plastic deformation zone engenders under the persisting stress of the surrounding rock, then the cracks appears and expands continuously, the broken rock zone appears at last and the intensity of the stress concentration decreases as well as the stress field shifts beyond.
