Study on Constitutive Relation and Permeable Coefficient Tensor of Rocks under Tensile Stress Loading with Micromechanics


Article Preview

In the present paper, a micromechanical based damage model and corresponding permeable coefficient tensor are developed for rocks under tensile stress and hydraulic pressure loading based on the concept of the domain of microcrack growth (DMG) . After choosing an appropriate fracture criterion for microcracks, we obtain the equations from which the DMG under a monotonically increasing proportional plane stress and an invariable hydraulic pressure loading is obtained. Then the overall effective stress-strain relations and the permeable coefficient tensor of damaged rocks are calculated. The theory is verified by test.
