A Constitutive Model of Anchored Jointed Rock Mass and its Application


Article Preview

The jointed rock mass distributed in the nature widely and its mechanical characteristic influenced the stability of the rock engineering badly. The cracks propagated and coalesced each other and macroscopic failure happened. Bolts were a kind of effective reinforcement instrument and they could prevent the cracks from propagating. However, the anchoring mechanism of bolts was not realized clearly and their reinforcement could not be reflected effectively in the numerical simulation yet. Based on the damage mechanics, a constitutive relation and damage equation of anchored jointed rock mass were presented in this paper. With a project application, the model was proved to be feasible one.
