Inelastic Behavior Modeling of Block Medium at the Different Scale Levels

Conference paper


The modeling of geomechanical objects behavior is necessary for the evaluation of possibility and consequences of undesirable dynamical events (rock bursts, earthquakes), grounding of building projects, etc. These objects (rock massif, lithosphere) have hierarchical block structure [1], block material under loading is linear-elastic and physical non-linear processes display along rock joints.
