Abstract

In this paper, a numerical study of the geomechanical stress state evolution induced by the railway traffic is presented. The numerical model is based on a 2.5D formulation with the ability to account for the dynamic train‐track interaction. For the case study, the stress state [...]

Abstract

This paper presents numerical modelling of rock cutting processes. The model consists of a tool–rock system. The rock is modelled using the discrete element method, which is suitable [...]

Abstract

This paper presents advanced computer simulation of rock cutting process typical for excavation works in civil engineering. Theoretical formulation of the hybrid discrete/finite element [...]

Abstract

This work adopts a fast and accurate two-stage computational strategy for the analysis of FSW (Friction stir welding) processes using threaded cylindrical pin tools. [...]

Abstract

With the increasing importance of environmental protection, more and more attention has been paid to backfilling coal mining. The prediction and design of the proportioning of backfill materials are significantly important for paste backfilling coal mining. In this study, the key [...]
