Model of Damage Fracture and Damage Rheology for Jointed Rock Mass and Its Engineering Application
This paper puts forward a damage-fracture mechanical model and a damage-rheology mechanical model for the jointed rock mass of the high slopes in the ship lock area of Three Gorges Project. These two models are used to analyze the slopes’ stability. A comparison of the computed displacements at numbers of points on the slope surfaces with the results from 3-D analysis is also made. In addition, some computing results are compared with the in-situ measured ones, showing that the model proposed is basically reliable.
