The effects of thermal treatments on the subcritical crack growth of Pingdingshan sandstone at elevated high temperatures

Increasing the deeper understanding of the thermal damages and failure mechanisms of sandstone undergoing thermal treatments at different temperatures is a key concern for deep-mining and underground coal gasification processes. In this research …

Cracking Processes and Coalescence Modes in Rock-Like Specimens with Two Parallel Pre-existing Cracks

The cracks in a rock tend to initiate, propagate, and coalesce under loading. Based on the digital image correlation (DIC) method, uniaxial compression tests are carried out on rock-like specimens with various arrangements of two parallel cracks.

Closed-Form Solution for the Stresses in Brazilian Disc Tests Under Vertical Uniform Loads

Loading arcs, which create a definite contact range and have a radius equal to the test specimen, have been recently introduced into Brazilian disc tests, which are common indirect tensile strength tests. Inspired by the testing apparatus, a new …

Surface Characterization and Frictional Energy Dissipation Characteristics of Deep Granite Under High Stress Conditions

Rockbursts are one of the most violent dynamic disasters in deep mining. New research has suggested that an energy theory-based approach may be useful for solving deep rockburst problems, and energy theory has been recognized as the most …

Investigating the Roles of Included Angle and Loading Condition on the Critical Hydraulic Gradient of Real Rock Fracture Networks

A natural rock mass always comprised an intact rock matrix and numerous individual fractures, with the latter acting as the primary flow channels for fluids. Accurate estimation of fluid flow behaviors through fractures is crucial to the …

Unsicherheitsabschätzung für die Berechnung von dynamischen Überschwemmungskarten – Fallstudie Kulmbach

Das vom BMBF geförderte Projekt FloodEvac hat zum Ziel, im Hochwasserfall räumliche und zeitliche Informationen der Hochwassergefährdung bereitzustellen. Im hier vorgestellten Teilprojekt werden Überschwemmungskarten zu Wassertiefen und Fließgeschwindigkeiten unter Angabe der Modellunsicherheiten berechnet.
