Description

In this fully up-to-date volume, important new developments and applications of discrete element modelling are highlighted and brought together for presentation at the First International UDEC/3DEC Symposium.

Papers covered the following key areas:

* behaviour of masonry structures (walls, bridges, towers, columns)

* stability and deformation of tunnels and caverns in fractured rock masses

* geomechanical modelling for mining and waste repositories

* rock reinforcement design (anchors, shotcrete, bolts)

* mechanical and hydro-mechanical behaviour of dams and foundations

* rock slope stability, deformation and failure mechanisms

* modelling of fundamental rock mechanical problems

* modelling of geological processes

* constitutive laws for fractured rock masses and masonry structures

* dynamic behaviour of discrete structures.

Numerical Modelling of Discrete Materials in Geotechnical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Earth Sciences provides an ultra-modern, in-depth analysis of discrete element modelling in a range of different fields, thus proving valuable reading for civil, mining, and geotechnical engineers, as well as other interested professionals.
