Research on Post-Peak Characteristics of Elastic-Plastic Strain-Softening Model Based on Mohr-Coulomb Strength Criterions
Considering the characteristic that rock mass can transform from brittleness to plasticity and the dynamic change of post-peak strength parameters of the rock mass, the invariability of elastic modulus and poisson's ratio, constitutive model of rock mass could be described with the characteristic that strength parameters obey different Mohr-Coulomb failure criterions under different plastic strains. This model may reflect the post-peak subsequent characteristics of rock mass and the fact that rock mass can transform from brittleness to plasticity with the increase of confining pressure. Numerical calculation is applied to simulate the triaxial compression test under different confining pressures and underground engineering example, which proves that this model has the characteristic of reflecting the damage extent of surrounding rock.
