Modelling rock fractures using SPH with an embedded fracture process zone
thesisposted on 26.02.2020 by YINGNAN WANG
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This research is aimed to develop an advanced computational framework that includes intrinsic spatial and temporal scales. In this computational framework, a new continuum-based constitutive model with embedded discontinuity is developed and then incorporated into the mesh-free smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method, capable of handling problems involving complex fracture networks.
