Geomechanica wishes to direct your attention to the latest issue of the Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering , which features a series of papers involving the application of advanced numerical modelling to various geomechanics and geoscience problems (Volume 6, Issue 6 – pp. 493-616 [December 2014]).
Geomechanica’s collaborative research and development efforts are featured in the following three papers:
- Andrea Lisjak, Daniel Figi, Giovanni Grasselli (2014). “Fracture development around deep underground excavations: Insights from FDEM modelling”. Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. (DOI:10.1016/j.jrmge.2014.09.003)
- Qi Zhao, Andrea Lisjak, Omid Mahabadi, Qinya Liu, Giovanni Grasselli (2014).“Numerical simulation of hydraulic fracturing and associated microseismicity using finite-discrete element method”. Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. (DOI:10.1016/j.jrmge.2014.10.003)
