Development and Application of Discontinuous Modelling for Rock Engineering
Proceedings of the 6th International Conference ICADD-6, Trondheim, Norway, 5-8 October 2003
The thirty papers published in this book represent the latest developments in Discontinuous Deformation Analysis (DDA). The Numerical Manifold Method (NMM) and other numerical methods and their applications are also covered, as are the theoretical contributions of 3D DDA, modelling and visualization of 3D joint systems, and high-order NMM. Applications of these advances include the stability of underground works, rock slopes and boreholes.
