Discontinuous Deformation Analysis in Rock Mechanics Practice (Hardcover): Yossef H. Hatzor, Guowei Ma, Gen-hua Shi Discontinuous Deformation Analysis in Rock Mechanics Practice (Hardcover)
Yossef H. Hatzor, Guowei Ma, Gen-hua Shi
R3,211 Discovery Miles 32 110 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The numerical, discrete element, Discontinuous Deformation Analysis (DDA) method was developed by Dr. Gen-hua Shi while he was working at the University of California, Berkeley, under the supervision of Prof. Richard E. Goodman in the late 1980s. Two-dimensional DDA was published in 1993 and three-dimensional DDA in 2001. Since its publication DDA has been verified, validated and applied in numerous studies worldwide and is now considered a powerful and robust method to address both static and dynamic engineering problems in discontinuous rock masses. In this book Yossef H. Hatzor and Guowei Ma, co-chairs of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) Commission on DDA, join Dr. Shi in authoring a monograph that presents the state of the art in DDA research. A comprehensive discussion of DDA development since its publication is provided in Chapter 1, followed by concise reviews of 2D and 3D DDA in chapters 2 and 3. Procedures to select geological and numerical input parameters for DDA are discussed in Chapter 4, and DDA validation and verification is presented in Chapter 5. Applications of DDA in underground and rock slope engineering projects are discussed in chapters 6 and 7. In Chapter 8 the novel contact theory recently developed by Dr. Shi is published in its complete form, for the first time. This book is published within the framework of the ISRM Book Series and is the contribution of the ISRM DDA Commission to the international rock mechanics community.

Soil and Rock Behavior Modeling (Paperback, illustrated Edition): Ronaldo Luna, Zhenshun Hong, Guowei Ma, Maosong Huang Soil and Rock Behavior Modeling (Paperback, illustrated Edition)

Soil and Rock Behavior and Modeling represents the latest advances in the static and dynamic behavior of soils and rocks, including constitutive modeling and numerical methods. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 65 international papers that were presented at the GeoShanghai Conference held in Shanghai, China from June 6-8, 2006. The book begins with two keynote articles that discuss soil constitutive modeling. The first section of the book discusses theoretical concepts and experimental procedures of soil behavior and laboratory testing. The second section's papers span from advanced concepts in rock mechanics to the interactions in constructed facilities. It also includes numerical applications of problems in rocks. The third section focuses on modeling soil behavior, with many of the papers using field and laboratory experimental data to verify their findings. Finally, the fourth section discusses the latest advances in soil and soil structure interactions under dynamic excitation. It contains results from work using shaking tables, wave induced loading, vibrations and numerical simulations.

Risk Analysis of Vapour Cloud Explosions for Oil and Gas Facilities (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019): Guowei Ma, Yimiao Huang, Jingde... Risk Analysis of Vapour Cloud Explosions for Oil and Gas Facilities (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019)

R3,536 Discovery Miles 35 360 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book focuses on describing and applying risk analysis of vapour cloud explosions (VCEs) in various oil and gas facilities, such as petrol stations, processing plants, and offshore platforms. Discussing most of the complicated features of gas explosion accidents, the book studies in detail the gas explosion risk analysis approaches of different oil and gas facilities in order to develop more accurate, detailed, efficient and reliable risk analysis methods for VCEs under different conditions. Moreover, it introduces an advanced overpressure approach to predict VCEs using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling, and details applications of CFD using a FLame ACceleration Simulator (FLACS). The book is intended for researchers and organisations engaged in risk and safety assessments of VCEs in the oil and gas industry.
