Fracture
<p>In this study, a particle-based approach is employed to simulate the fluid flow through single fractures considering detailed geometrical characteristics of the fracture walls at meso-scale. For this purpose, Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) which is an efficient computational fluid dynamic method for simulation of fluid flow in media with grossly irregul...

Rockfill behavior is dominated by particle breakage, a phenomenon which is analyzed from the perspective offered by the subcritical propagation of cracks within individual particles. Propagation velocity depends on stress concentration in particles as well as on the ambient Relative Humidity (RH). RH controlled oedometer and triaxial tests are reviewed and const...
