Watch Irazu software in action

The stability and failure of rock is an important consideration for many mining, oil & gas, nuclear waste disposal and tunnel construction projects. Due to the technical challenges and environmental risks posed by these projects, it is critical to have a clear understanding of the rock fracturing behaviour.

Modelling capabilities

We can tackle rock mechanics problems that deal with rock fracturing.

Our Irazu simulation software can:

  • Follow all loading stages of the rock stress-strain response including linear and nonlinear elastic pre-peak strain-hardening and post peak strain-softening.
  • Explicitly capture initiation, growth, and coalescence of fractures in intact or jointed rock masses over time.
  • Reproduce the interaction of newly formed fractures with each other and with pre-existing rock fabric features, including faults, bedding planes, and joints.
