THE CRACK OPENING DISPLACEMENT OF ROCK FRACTURE PROCESS ZONE

ABSTRACT
The original displacement value of fracture process zone can be obtained by digital image correlation technology. According to the virtual crack model, the formula to obtain the opening displacement is given in the experiment. Basing on the damage Mechanics theory and the actual deformation characteristics of fracture process zone, the traditional opening displacement distribution function of fracture process zone is modified by defining the wave coefficient and the damage factor of the horizontal elastic modulus. The measured opening displacement is compared with the opening displacement of the traditional theoretical function and modified function, and the results show that the opening displacement is non-linear fluctuation characteristic distribution influenced by damage. The revise distribution function not only reflects the overall growth trend of the opening displacement, but also reflects the local fluctuation characteristics. It has an important theoretical significance for understanding the non-linear characteristics of rock fracture process.
