A METHOD TO EVALUATE THE DEFORMATION BEHAVIOUR OF DISCONTINUOUS ROCK MASS AND ITS APPLICABILITY

A method to evaluate the deformability of rock masses is presented. This method considers the geometrical and mechanical properties of discontinuities, and the mechanical properties of intact rock. The constitutive equations to represent normal joint and shear stiffnesses varying against stress-deformation are introduced. The applicability of this method is clarified by means of two-dimension loaded large-scale rock mass models in the laboratory and by numerical analysis. The number of the covering abstract of the congress is TRIS no. 385148. (Author/TRRL)
