Direct shear tests were used to establish the shear behaviour of continuous planar-joints, discontinuous stepped-joints and discontinuous open-joints. The joints were cast in a Synthetic rock made of plaster, sand and water and tested under normal stresses that ranged from 50 kPa to 3.5 MPa. A...
The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been developed and used in modelling dry granular materials with or without cohesive bonding between particles. The incorporation of fluid flow in the DEM analysis is difficult since the DEM is a discrete approach to mechanistic analysis while fluid is a...
