    A Calculation Method of Double Strength Reduction for Layered Slope Based on the Reduction of Water Content Intensity

    Feng Shen1,*, Yang Zhao1, Bingyi Li1, Kai Wu2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.1, pp. 221-243, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029159

    Abstract The calculation of the factor of safety (FOS) is an important means of slope evaluation. This paper proposed an improved double strength reduction method (DRM) to analyze the safety of layered slopes. The physical properties of different soil layers of the slopes are different, so the single coefficient strength reduction method (SRM) is not enough to reflect the actual critical state of the slopes. Considering that the water content of the soil in the natural state is the main factor for the strength of the soil, the attenuation law of shear strength of clayey soil… More >

    Study on Strength Reduction Law and Meso-Crack Evolution of Lower Layered Cemented Tailings Backfill

    Huazhe Jiao1,2,3, Wenxiang Zhang1,2,3,*, Yunfei Wang1,2,3,*, Xinming Chen1,2,3, Liuhua Yang1,2,3, Yangyang Rong1,2,3

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 1513-1529, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.026008

    Abstract The green disposal of tailings solid waste is a problem to be solved in mine production. Cemented tailings filling stoping method can realize the dual goals of solid waste resource utilization and mined-out area reduction. However, the volume of the mined-out area of the open-pit method is larger than the filling capacity, resulting in the complex stratification of the underground backfill, and the strength of the backfill cannot meet the requirements. In this paper, according to the delamination situation, the specimens of horizontal and inclination angle layered cemented tailings backfill (LCTB) is made for a… More >

    Effect of Inclined Tension Crack on Rock Slope Stability by SSR Technique

    Ch. Venkat Ramana*, Niranjan Ramchandra Thote, Arun Kumar Singh

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 1205-1214, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.031838

    Abstract The tension cracks and joints in rock or soil slopes affect their failure stability. Prediction of rock or soil slope failure is one of the most challenging tasks in the earth sciences. The actual slopes consist of inhomogeneous materials, complex morphology, and erratic joints. Most studies concerning the failure of rock slopes primarily focused on determining Factor of Safety (FoS) and Critical Slip Surface (CSS). In this article, the effect of inclined tension crack on a rock slope failure is studied numerically with Shear Strength Reduction Factor (SRF) method. An inclined Tension Crack (TC) influences… More >

    A New Criterion for Defining Inhomogeneous Slope Failure Using the Strength Reduction Method

    Chengya Hua1, Leihua Yao1,*, Chenguang Song1, Qihang Ni1, Dongfang Chen2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.132, No.2, pp. 413-434, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.020260

    Abstract A new variational method treating the system as a whole with rigorous mathematical and physical derivation was presented in this paper. Combined with classical and engineering examples, variational energy expressions of slopes were derived. In addition, the calculation programs were written in the FISH language set in FLAC3D (fast Lagrangian analysis of continua in three dimensions) software. Factors of safety (FOSs) of the models were determined by the variational method based on the strength reduction method (SRM) and then compared with other criteria or methods. The result showed that the variational method reflected the process… More >

    Safety Evaluation of Concrete Structures Based on a Novel Energy Criterion

    Qiang Tong1, Qingwen Ren1, *, Lei Shen 2, Linfei Zhang 2, Yin Yang3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.114, No.1, pp. 33-58, 2018, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2018.114.033

    Abstract In this article, the post-peak softening stage of the constitutive relation and the elastic stiffness degradation of concrete are investigated, and a highly reasonable constitutive relation curve is proposed. At the material level, the energy change in the concrete failure process is studied based on the different stress-strain curves of concrete under uniaxial tension and compression. The concrete failure criterion based on elastic strain energy density is deemed suitable and consistent with the experimental phenomena. The hysteresis phenomenon (lags behind the peak strength) is also discussed. At the structure level, the strength reduction method is More >
