Abstract

TO GREAT UNDERSTANDING THE DYNAMIC CRACK PROPAGATION OF ROCK UNDER IN-SITU STRESS AND BLASTING, THE STATIC-DYNAMIC LOADING EXPERIMENTAL PLATFORM WAS BUILT. WITH DIFFERENT CONFINING PRESSURE (0MPA, 2MPA, 4MPA, 6MPA, 8MPA) AND DIFFERENT RATIOS (K) OF HORIZONTAL-TO-VERTICAL PRESSURE (0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1), NINE TEXTS HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN QUADRATE GRANITE SAMPLES. THE DYNAMIC STRAIN GAUGES AND HIGH-SPEED (HS) CAMERA WERE USED TO MEASURE STRAIN FIELD AND OBSERVE CRACK GROWTH. ACCORDING TO EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS, THE CENTROSYMMETRIC DAMAGE ZONE IS GENERATED AROUND BOREHOLE WHEN K=1, CIRCUMFERENCE COMPRESSIVE STRESS IS FORMED BY CONFINING PRESSURE, AND IT REDUCES THE CIRCUMFERENCE TENSILE FAILURE BY BLAST LOADING. THE NUMBER AND SIZE OF THE BROKEN RADIUS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE WITH CONFINING PRESSURE INCREASES. AS K DECREASE FROM 1 TO 0, THE TENSILE STRESS CONCENTRATION IS OBVIOUSLY AROUND BOREHOLE IN THE VERTICAL DIRECTION, AND RADIAL CRACKS GROW FROM THE STRESS CONCENTRATION ZONE AND DEVELOP INTO BOUNDARY UNDER TENSILE STRESS WAVE FROM BLAST LOADING. FROM THE NUMERICAL ANALYSIS BASED ON JOHNSON-HOLMQUIST IN AUTODYN, CRACK BRANCHING APPEAR NEAR FREE BOUNDARY AND BECOME OBVIOUSLY, MEANWHILE THE RADIAL CRACKS GROW AND RUN THROUGH SAMPLE BY REFLECTED WAVE. COMPARED TO THE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS, THE EVOLUTION AND FINAL SHAPE OF CRACKS ARE AGREE WITH THE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS, THE CENTRAL DAMAGE AREA IS LESS THAN LATTER BECAUSE JWL EQUATION NEGLECT THE GAS LOADING IN NUMERICAL CALCULATION.
