Abstract
Crack initiation is an important stage in the failure process of rock masses. In this paper, crack initiation behaviors (crack initiation model, crack initiation location, crack initiation angle, and crack initiation stress) of granite specimens containing crossing-double-flaws with different lengths were investigated using PFC2D software. Crack initiation models were all tensile wing cracks, which did not exactly initiate from the main flaw with a length of 30 mm. They can initiate from the secondary flaw with a length 20 mm at of 30° (included angle between main flaw and horizontal direction) and of 90° (included angle between main and secondary flaws) and from main and secondary flaws at of 30° and of 60°. These were mainly induced by the superposition of stress fields around the main and secondary flaws as varied from 0° to 90°, especially the tensile force concentration zones superposition. The tensile forces concentration zone around flaw shrank towards flaw tips with the increase of flaw’s inclinations measured horizontally. Under stress field superposition effects, the crack initiation stress decreased firstly and then increased with at of 30° and 45°. Crack initiation locations were close to flaw tips but not restricted to them. The distances between crack initiation locations and flaw tips, and the crack initiation angles depended on the flaw where first macrocracks initiated from. Microdisplacement field distributions of granite specimens to reveal the mesomechanism of crack initiation behaviors were discussed.

Abstract The fracture characteristics of fine-grained granite were examined for a potential geothermal-energy reservoir. The granite was thermally cycled in a furnace between 100℃ and 300℃ and its mechanical behavior and meso-crack characteristics were analyzed. The results indicate that thermal cycling leads to decreased fracture toughness (Keff), absorbed energy (U), longitudinal wave velocity (Pv), and increased permeability (K) in granite. These changes can be explained using the thermal fat...

Accurately predicting the roof collapse span is crucial in ensuring the safe production of thick seam mining with large mining height, which is easy in forming a “cantilever beam” structure. Considering roof damage caused by roadway excavation and coal seam mining disturbance, the fracture mechanics model of large mining height roof cantilever beam with nonpenetrating cracks was established. The roof was divided into two parts: the crack-affected area and the crack-unaffected area. The analytica...

Using salt caverns for an underground strategic petroleum reserve (SPR) is considered as an ideal approach due to the excellent characteristics of low porosity, low permeability, self-healing of damage, and strong plastic deformation ability of rock salt. Salt deposits in China are mostly layered rock salt structures, with the characteristics of many interlayers, bringing great challenges for the construction of SPR facilities. Studying the microscopic pore characteristics of the rock surroundin...

Tension failure is one of the main forms of instability in geotechnical engineering. Aiming at the calculation error caused by the loading direction deviation of the Brazilian disc splitting method, a mechanical model of a disc under chord loading was constructed firstly. Based on the theory of complex variable function, the analytic solutions of stresses in a circular disc were deduced, and the calculation error of the tensile strength under chord loading was characterized by defining the error...

Acoustic emission (AE) location technique and moment tensor analysis were used to evaluate the temporal–spatial evolution and damage of micro-cracks of schist during true triaxial compression and strain burst tests. The results show that the AE locations coincide with the macroscopic cracks for true triaxial compression while they are scattered during unloading strain burst tests. A shearing concentration occurs at the bottom of ejection position, but a tensile zone is located in the fracture pl...

Abstract In this study, uniaxial compression tests were conducted on the composite samples of coal and oil shale characterised by high strength and low elastic modulus. Their fracturing and failure propagation processes were monitored by an acoustic emission (AE) device and a digital video camera. The strength, macro-failure initiation (MFI) and failure characteristics of composite samples are analysed. Differences in mechanical properties between the coal and oil shale influence the stress stat...

Trying to reveal the mechanism of gas seepage in coal is of significance to both safe mining and methane exploitation. A series of FEM numerical models were built up and studied so as to explore the mesoscale mechanism of seepage in coal fractures. The proposed mesoscale FEM model is a cube with micron fractures along three orthogonal directions. The distribution of velocity and pressure under fluid-solid coupling was obtained, and furthermore, the seepage flow flux and an equivalent permeabilit...

Owing to salt erosion, the sandstone of Yungang Grottoes has widespread weathering diseases. The soluble salt develops reciprocating crystallization pressure under the action of dry and wet cycles to diminish the sandstone strength. Finally, several pore-like and powder-like weathering phenomena are formed. To explore the change in sandstone strength during this process, the sandstone of Yungang Grottoes was taken as the research object. Herein, the uniaxial compression test, XRD test, and other...
