Abstract
According to the relationship between the development of hydraulic fracture and the distribution of different rock and mineral fabrics, digital image technology was used in this study based on the discrete element particle flow method. An SCGM numerical model, which can control fabric and refine mesoscopic crystal defects, was constructed. The tensile strength test of granite specimens with different component contents and polymerization conditions was conducted, with the monitorization of damaged cracks. The test results showed that (1) the SCGM model could construct a model of a crystal structure containing variable components and polymerization, to achieve numerical experiments of different parameters; (2) compared with previous models, the SCGM model can reflect internal stress change of a specimen with the variation of the structure. At the same time, the contained crystal structure can characterize different failure modes such as intergranular cracks of different components, grain boundary cracks of the same component, and transgranular cracks, which were in good agreement with the actual failure state of granite; (3) the mica content of the specimen and its strength presented a linear relationship of . The degree of polymerization of the components and the strength of the specimens were both affected by the accumulation of microcracks and stress concentration, which appeared to increase first and then decrease. When the specimen was broken, the number of microcracks and the degree of polymerization of the components also increased first and then decreased. The SCGM model can construct a numerical model of granite with arbitrary fabric and crystal structure and provide a hydraulic fracturing analysis method.

Abstract The present work studies the Park–Paulino–Roesler (PPR) model, a unified potential-based cohesive zone model (CZM), for mixed mode I/II fractures in different ranked coals, including weakly caking coals, fat coals and anthracite, by using disk-shaped compact tension (DC(T)) tests and punch-through shear (PTS) tests. The PTS experiments showed that with the increase in coal rank, the initial shear stiffness and shear peak loads grow and the maximum tangential crack opening displacement (...

Landslides are one of the most destructive geological disasters and have been caused many casualties and economic losses every year in the world. The reservoir area formed by the world's largest hydropower project, Three Gorges Hydropower project of China, has become a natural testing ground for landslide prediction in the hope of reducing losses. In this paper, a new algorithm with strong optimization ability, the water cycle algorithm (WCA), is combined with the extreme learning machine (ELM) ...

Establishing a soil liquefaction prediction model with high accuracy is a critical way to evaluate the quality of in situ and prevent the loss caused by seismic. In this paper, considering the advantage of cone penetration test (CPT) over standard penetration test (SPT) and the suitability for dealing with the nonlinear problems of the extreme learning machine (ELM), the ELM was tried to train the prediction model. Firstly, seven prediction parameters were analyzed and determined; then 226 CPT s...

Abstract The present paper investigates the effects of CO2-saturation and confining pressures on the fracture toughness of carbon dioxide saturated bituminous coals. Three-point bending experiments were performed with semi-circular coal specimens (SCB) after they were immersed in different CO2 pressures. The experimental results show that the pure modes I and II fracture toughnesses of coal samples gradually decrease with the growth of CO2-saturation pressure. Additionally, the fracture toughnes...

Abstract In view of the deep dewatering of landfill sludge (LS) that had been buried for more than ten years in Shanghai, Fenton's reagent combined with a vacuum preloading method was proposed. First, a vacuum filtration test was carried out to study the optimal amount of Fenton's reagent for LS. Then, four filter membranes with different pore sizes were used for a vacuum preloading model box test to study the influence of pore size on the consolidation behaviour of LS. Through particle analysis...

For water inrush from coal floor, due to different kinds of controlling factors and their internal correlations, the accuracy of prediction model is mostly below expectation. In this paper, it studies on which controlling factors should be selected for water inrush prediction model because all these factors have different influence on water inrush incidents based on the analysis of in situ data. Some factors are proved having limited impacts on water inrush, it is no necessary to collect in situ...

Abstract The distribution characteristics and evolution law of rock mass fissures induced by mining are a key scientific issue in the study of deep rock mechanics. In this study, a series of uniaxial compression experiments was conducted on rock-like specimens containing double V-shaped prefabricated fissures at dip angles of α = β = 45°, α = 45°

The present work conducted laboratory experiments of fracturing in fat coals, anthracites, and mudstones. Three different fluids were selected as the fracturing fluids, including water, liquid CO2 (L-CO2), and supercritical CO2 (Sc-CO2). The resulting fracture morphologies and fracture apertures of the coal specimens were investigated using 3D morphological scanning, and the permeabilities of the samples were measured before and after fracturing. The experimental results showed that the breakdow...

In order to study the influence of water level fluctuation on the stability of landslide in the Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR), Xigouwan landslide was selected to be a research object to analyze its deformation mechanism as the fluctuation of the reservoir water level. Based on the long-term field monitoring of landslide, the evolution law of the surface has been studied. Based on the numerical simulation used by FLAC3D, five different water levels of TGR operating conditions are set, and the plas...

Abstract Estimation of horizontal stress magnitudes from borehole breakouts has been an attractive topic in the petroleum and mining industries, although there are critical research gaps that remain unfilled. In this paper, numerical simulation is conducted on Gosford sandstone to investigate the borehole breakout and its associated borehole size effect, including temperature influence. The discrete element method (DEM) model shows that the borehole breakout angular span is constant after the in...
