Shear Fracture Growth in Granular Rocks and Porosity-Permeability Relationships in Mudstones
I employ the Discrete Element Method to analyze the micromechanical response of granular rocks to unstable failure. Calibrated granular models of sandstone and granite are subjected to biaxial experiments under confining ...
Controls on Uplift Patterns in Raukumara Peninsula, New Zealand: Insights from DEM Modeling
Discrete element numerical simulations are used to understand how underplating, the subcretion of subducted sediments from the top of the downgoing plate to the bottom of the overriding plate, drives upper plate faulting ...
