Discontinuous deformation analysis (DDA) is considered to be an efficient way to study deformation behavior of ballast, in which polygon particles can be easily captured. In this paper, a new method was proposed to generate polygon particles and was successfully implied in DDA simulation of spontaneous stacking and uniaxial compression process of ballast. The results demonstrate as follows: The spontaneous repose angle of ballast is affected by the angle of friction of particle surfaces, interlocking effect of particles and the angle of friction between particles and ballast slabs; the DDA method is a useful method for the investigation of deformation behavior of ballast; three stages can be identified in compaction of ballast as the elastic, plastic and elastic hardening stages, the hardening stress controls the plastic strain and has a function similar to the pre-consolidated stress.

Frost heaving and thaw collapsing are the main defects of subgrade in permafrost areas and are highly related to the coupled heat-moisture migration. Based on the water flow theory of unsaturated soil and the heat transfer theory of soil, the differential equations for coupled water and heat transfer are established. The coupled water and heat transfer problem of frozen soil is solved using the secondary development of COMSOL Multi-physics. To verify the method for simulating the heat-moisture coupled process, the freezing and thawing processes of soil columns are simulated, and the results are compared with the measured data from laboratory tests. Finally, a case study is carried out for the subgrade in Maduo county, Qinghai Province, and the characteristics of the coupled heat-moisture migration in permafrost subgrade are analyzed. ©, 2015, Yantu Gongcheng Xuebao/Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering.

With the discrete element method(DEM), biaxial compressions test conditions for crushed rock aggregate were established in the Fish language and the Clump logic commands in PFC2D were incorporated into the computer language to simulate the crushed rock aggregate of irregular shapes. Compared with large-scale laboratory triaxial tests, the parameters of the numerical model were calibrated and validated. The stress-deformation and shearing strength of the crushed stone aggregate of three typical particle sizes were analyzed. The research results demonstrate as follws: The confining pressure influences the stress-strain characteristics of aggregate significantly; for aggregate of different particle sizes, along with adding of the confining pressure, the peak deviatoric stress increases while the stress ratio decreases; within the specified range of confining pressure initial compression and subsequent dilation are observed with the aggregate, the higher the confining pressure, the larger the compression and the smaller the dilation; the shear strength envelope of the aggregate is nonlinear, under the same confining pressure, the shear strength increases with increasing of particle sizes; the apparent friction angle decreases with adding of the confining pressure, under the same confining pressure, the larger the particle size of the aggregate, the larger the apparent friction angle.
