Mohr-Coulomb and Hoek-Brown failure criteria are the two most widely used failure criteria in rock engineering. To simulate brittle failure of rocks in deep tunnel, models based on these two failure criteria have been proposed, including the Cohesion Weakening and Friction Strengthening (CWFS) model, the Damage Initiation and Spalling Limit (DISL) model and the Brittle-Ductile- Plastic (BDP) model. However, because of the issues of strain hardening under high confinement and large ambiguity in model parameter determination, these models face limitations in practical engineering application. Based on progressive failure of rocks, we found that cracks propagate under compression and as a result the Geological Strength Index (GSI) decreases with the increase of plastic strain. By defining the GSI value as a function of plastic strain, a strain-dependent GSI-softening model based on the Hoek-Brown failure criterion is proposed. This model is then implemented in FLAC3D to simulate the triaxial compression test of T2b marble in Jinping-II hydropower station. It is found that this model is able to simulate the mechanical behavior of the brittle-ductile transition observed in the triaxial compression test of the Jinping marble.

We present an efficient implementation of the hierarchical mean-field theory with largeblock in quantum spin systems. The wave function is a product of the large block states.Each large block state is a superposition of products of small block states. Our result isvery close to that of the hierarchical mean-field in a numerical cost effective way. Wetest our method on a frustrated spin lattice. © 2014, EDP Sciences, SIF, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Source

Tianjin Research Institute for Water Transport Engineering, Ministry of Transport, Tianjin 300456 This study investigated the change hydrodynamic characteristics at the confluence reach in BaiShi Reservoir area in the Daling River with different factors, based on model testing. The results show that the water depth and flow area increase along the channel, and the flow velocity in the mainstream and tributaries upstream of the confluence zone increases along the channel as well, while the flow velocity downstream of the confluence zone decreases significantly along the channel. The backflow region occurs in the tributaries downstream of the confluence zone, and its range increases with the confluence ratio. When the water level upstream of the dam increases, the absolute value of the velocity and its change rate along the channel decrease in the confluence zone, while the degree of curvature of the main stream line and the backflow region range increase. ©, 2015, Editorial Office of Journal of Hohai University (Nature Sciences).
