Abstract

Scale effect is a phenomenon of growing importance in rock mechanics, however large scale experiments are difficult to handle, and numerical modeling can be an easier way to study it. This paper presents some improvements made on the previously developed model for large shear displacement of rock joints, and presents some results obtained using of an originally developed finite displacement concept. The results indicate changes in the dilatation curves versus joint size.
