Rock Strength Anisotropy in High Stress Conditions: A Case Study for Application to Shaft Stability Assessments
Studia Geotechnica et Mechanica
Although rock strength anisotropy is a well-known phenomenon in rock mechanics, its impact on geotechnical design is often ignored or underestimated. This paper explores the concept of anisotropy in a high stress environment using an improved unified constitutive model (IUCM), which can account for more complex failure mechanisms. The IUCM is used to better understand the typical responses of anisotropic rocks to underground mining. This study applies the IUCM to a proposed rock shaft locateddoi:10.1515/sgem-2015-0013 fatcat:o3c7qgvbvjalniuvkafz7sskxu
