Abstract
A new apparatus for determining the constitutive response of rock and concrete, named the University of Minnesota Plane-Strain Apparatus, was designed and built on a passive stiff-frame concept. The biaxial device, with U.S. Patent number 5,063,785, is unique, because it allows the failure plane to develop and propagate in an unrestricted manner, as opposed to conventional systems where the material is constrained by the testing apparatus. By placing the upper platen on a low friction linear bearing, the prismatic specimen, subjected to confining pressure and compressed axially, has the freedom to translate in the lateral direction once the deformation has localized across the entire specimen. In addition, homogeneous deformation is prompted by the use of a stearic-acid based lubricant, which is placed on the four surfaces of the specimen contacting hardened-steel platens. Thus, the apparatus combines the positive features of a conventional triaxial compression test and a direct shear test. Some 30 experiments on sandstone and mortar indicated that even though localization of deformation was detected by locations of acoustic emission prior to peak load, the failure plane was not fully formed at the peak. For the mortar, one more or less planar shear band, the orientation of which is well predicted by plasticity theories, was observed. A kinked rupture zone with two main portions, one steep and one less inclined, appeared in the sandstone; the steep portion may be a result of fracture phenomena. The dilatancy characteristics of rock-like materials may dictate the type of failure mode, either shear banding for ductile behavior or crack propagation for brittle behavior.

To better understand the phenomena leading to the failure of rock, unconfined compression experiments on Charcoal granite specimens were performed with the monitoring of acoustic emission (AE). Localization in the form of spalling near the free surface was detected by the concentration of hypocenters. The AE locations, which look random in space and time before localization, actually were clustered and have fractal structure in either space or time. After localization, the fractal dimensions red...

We present a model for the nucleation and growth of faults in intact brittle rocks. The model is based on recent experiments that utilize acoustic emission events to monitor faulting processes in Westerly granite. In these experiments a fault initiated at one site without significant preceding damage. The fault propagated in its own plane with a leading zone of intense microcracking. We propose here that faults in granites nucleate and propagate by the interaction of tensile microcracks in the f...

J. F. LABUZ~ J. M. BRIDELL~ INTRODUCTION A basic assumption in material testing is the existence of a uniform stress state, where the loading surfaces are usually the principal planes. During compressive load- ing, however, this condition becomes untenable because a frictional constraint develops at the interface between the material and loading system [1-4]. A cylindrical geometry, for example, takes on a barrel shape and a nonuniform stress state develops throughout the cylin- der. This is esp...

Discontinuous bifurcations of an elastic-plastic material obeying Mohr's yield criterion and a nonassociated flow rule and subjected to general three-dimensional loading are investigated. The first possibility for bifurcation is identified and expressed in terms of the critical hardening modulus and the corresponding orientation of the slip planes. In the case of perfect plasticity the Mohr and Roscoe solutions for the orientation of the slip planes are derived. The corresponding strain rate fie...

Abstract New experimental results show unequivocally, and for the first time in a material with cohesion, that shear band formation under plane-strain conditions occurs in the hardening regime; that is, when the hardening modulus is still positive. Initial localization is inferred to be accomodated by rigid-body grain motions through the matrix, followed by only minor grain cracking occurring before peak stress. Evaluation of the hardening modulus at shear band initiation is made on the basis of...

The failure process in a brittle granite sample can be stabilized by controlling axial stress to maintain a constant rate of acoustic emission. As a result, the post-failure stress curve can be followed quasi-statically, extending to hours the fault growth process which normally would occur violently in a fraction of a second. Using a procedure originally developed to locate earthquakes, acoustic emission arrival-time data are inverted to obtain three-dimensional locations of microseisms. These ...

The emergence of general stationary-wave solutions, exemplified by Rayleigh surface waves and Stoneley interface waves, is taken as a criterion for the onset of localization in the presence of geometrical features such as free boundaries and interfaces. The stationary-wave solutions yield the possible orientations of the emerging shear bands. The influence of interfaces in crystalline solids and of free boundaries in pressure-sensitive frictional materials is investigated within this general fra...

This apparatus is a modification of the device designed by Vardoulakis and Goldscheider [1] for testing planar shear banding in sands. The modifications involve improved axial load guidance, low friction linear bearing, and enhanced load and displacement measurement instrumentation. The apparatus allows for accurate prelocalization material behavior a...

Abstract null null It is known from the split Hopkinson pressure bars experiments on dynamic uniaxial compression of brittle materials such as rocks and concrete that the strength increases with the increase of loading rate and the sample size. Friction and crack propagation do depend upon the loading rate, but this dependence would lead to the opposite effect 鈥 the strength decrease with the loading rate. Forrestal, et al. null [1] null showed that in dynamic loading the inertia effect induces ...

This paper presents a framework for modeling failure in quasi-brittle geomaterials under different loading conditions. A micromechanics-based model is proposed in which the field variables are linked to physical mechanisms at the microcrack level: damage is related to the growth of microcracks, while plasticity is related to the frictional sliding of closed microcracks. Consequently, the hardening/softening functions and parameters entering the free energy follow from the definition of a single ...

Abstract A laboratory study of inelastic deformation and localization was conducted to evaluate microseismicity and fracture in fluid-saturated rock. Plane strain compression experiments were performed on oil- and water-saturated Berea sandstone under dry, drained, undrained, and quasi-unjacketed conditions. Parameters associated with the elastic and inelastic material response were accurately measured and used in a constitutive model to predict localization of deformation under the drained and ...

This study develops a micro-mechanics-based elastoplastic damage model within the framework of irreversible thermodynamics. In the model, damage is related to growth of micro-cracks, while plastic deformation is induced by frictional sliding along those cracks. The damage criterion and functions of thermodynamic force are used to describe the damage evolution of rocks and determine whether they are damaged. Time-dependent deformation of rock is also taken into account by considering subcritical ...

A true triaxial apparatus was designed and fabricated to achieve multi-axial stress states with prismatic specimens. The device, which is a modification of the University of Minnesota plane-strain apparatus, is equipped with piston assemblies that generate the intermediate principal stress. A closed-loop, servo-hydraulic load frame is used to control the major principal stress, while the minor principal stress is developed by fluid pressure. A stress path was developed to perform experiments und...

Abstract The paper presents an approach to developing the mathematical formalism of the discrete element method to numerically study the inelastic behavior and fracture of brittle materials under dynamic loading. The approach adopts the basic principles of the kinetic theory of strength which postulate the finite time of nucleation of discontinuities and relaxation of local stresses in the material. A general methodology is proposed for constructing dynamic (kinetic) models of the mechanical beh...
