Abstract This paper presents an extensive laboratory investigation of the non-linear rheological mechanical characteristics of hard rock under cyclic incremental loading and unloading. A data processing algorithm is proposed to analyze the experimental data, determine the instantaneous elastic and plastic strain components, visco-elastic and visco-plastic strain components from the total strain, and separate the visco-elastic and visco-plastic strain curves from the total creep strain curves. The elasto-viscoplastic rheological behavior of iherzolite specimens at various confining pressures is thoroughly studied using the obtained experimental data. Based on the data, a non-linear elasto-viscoplastic rheological model containing various deformation components is proposed, by connecting a Hooke body, a parallel combination of Hooke and plastic slide bodies, a Kelvin body, and a generalized Bingham body. The proportion of instantaneous plastic strain component in the total instantaneous strain has increasing tendency with higher deviatoric stress on a whole. The instantaneous elastic modulus of specimen tends to increase with higher deviatoric stress and confining pressure, the instantaneous plastic modulus of specimen is decreased with higher deviatoric stress at confining pressures of 3 and 6 MPa on the whole, however, has no evident relationship with deviatoric stress, when confining pressure is increased to 9 and 16 MPa. The proportion of the visco-plastic strain component in the creep strain is increased with higher deviatoric stress. The steady-state creep strain rate versus deviatoric stress relationship can be well described with an exponential expression. The elasto-viscoplastic characteristics of radial creep is similar to that of axial creep, but radial creep strain is only 25–30% of axial creep strain, steady-state creep rate in radial direction is about 35% of that in axial direction.

Abstract We investigated the time-dependent behavior of laminated shale that is prone to massive roof falls. One particular compressional failure known as “Cutter” roof failure often transforms into massive roof failure within a few days or months. High horizontal stresses also increase the propensity of these failures. In the past few decades, the effects of high horizontal stresses have been studied using numerical models, and these studies have been successful in providing significant insight...

Triaxial creep tests were performed on diabase specimens from the dam foundation of the Dagangshan hydropower station, and the typical characteristics of creep curves were analyzed. Based on the test results under different stress levels, a new nonlinear visco-elasto-plastic creep model with creep threshold and long-term strength was proposed by connecting an instantaneous elastic Hooke body, a visco-elasto-plastic Schiffman body, and a nonlinear visco-plastic body in series mode. By introducing...

The numerical analysis of tunnels in rock masses, which exhibit a squeezing behavior, is considered, with reference to the use of two elastoviscoplastic constitutive laws implemented in finite-difference and finite-element codes. Because of the fact that in the most severe squeezing conditions time dependence is observed during excavation and may last for a long time, both the reinforcement of the tunnel face and the support of the tunnel section are to be considered at the design and constructi...

Abstract In contrast to hard rocks, weak rocks often have significant shear-induced volumetric contraction/dilation under short-term or long-term loadings, and this behavior necessitates the development of an unconventional constitutive model. As such, an elastic–viscoplastic constitutive model characterizing the mechanical behavior of weak rocks is proposed, and its validity is demonstrated by comparing the simulated and the actual deformational behaviors of weak sandstone under various stress ...

This paper is intended to describe the SHELVIP (Stress Hardening ELastic VIscous Plastic) model, a new viscoplastic constitutive law which has been developed to incorporate the most important features of behaviour observed in tunnels excavated in severe to very severe squeezing conditions. This model couples the elastoplastic and time-dependent behaviour by using a plastic yield surface, as frequently adopted in tunnel design analysis, and the definition of a state of overstress referred to a vi...
This paper is a contribution to the study of tunnelling in difficult conditions, with attention paid to large time-dependent deformations, which may develop either during construction, causing instabilities of the tunnel heading and of the face, or during the service life of the tunnel. Under these circumstances the construction costs may rise due to the delays in excavation time, the stabilisation and heavy support measures that need be adopted. Following a review of characterisation and modell...

The visco-plastic behaviour of rocks plays a relevant role in the tunnelling works, especially for deep tunnels subjected to large initial stresses for which squeezing conditions may develop. A rheological model is discussed that accounts for visco-elastic (primary) and visco-plastic (secondary) contributions to rock creep. The effects of tertiary creep are included in the model by way of a gradual mechanical damage governed by the cumulated visco-plastic strains. The parameters of the intact ro...

Abstract Time-dependent deformation behavior of rocks has a significant impact on the stability of rock slopes or underground constructions. This paper presents systematic experimental data regarding time-dependent deformation of a typical weak sandstone, known as the Mushan sandstone. The observed deformations are further separated to distinguish elastic and viscoplastic behaviors of the weak sandstone through the use of multi-staged loading–creep-unloading–reloading tests. The stress path is d...

A fractional viscoelastic-viscoplastic model is developed for time-dependent materials, by considering the reference stress in the fractional viscoelastic body. Using this model, the creep, stress relaxation and strain rate behavior is numerically analyzed for frozen soil and zeonex results, with the consideration of continuous order functions that conform to the order interval limits. Subsequently, a variable-order viscoelastic-viscoplastic creep model and also a variable-order viscoelastic-vis...

Mudstone interlayer is a weak layer in rock engineering. When it is subjected to continuous stress higher than its damage threshold, due to the dislocation of particles in mudstone crystals and the expansion of cracks, mudstone strength is gradually damaged and deteriorated and the strain gradually increases, thus accelerating the phenomenon of creep damage. In order to describe the characteristics of the whole process of mudstone aging deformation, based on the damage evolution of strength para...
