Empirical equations for bulk and shear moduli of dry sandstones based on grain-scale numerical simulations
MetadataShow full item record
Elastic properties of rocks are largely controlled by parameters of grain contacts. In this paper, many computer 3D models of grain aggregates are generated for different parameters of grain contacts. Then, for each of these models, elastic properties are computed using finite element simulations. Finally, empirical fits are proposed that define elastic moduli of these sandstones as functions of grain contact parameters. The results show good agreement between the numerical simulations and predictions of the empirical fit.

The influence of cultivar, environment and nutrition management onwheat quality in the high rainfall zone of south west, Western AustraliaHughes, Darren Michael (2010)The high rainfall zone (HRZ) of south west Western Australian (WA) has traditionally been dominated by livestock industries. However, a reduction in wool price throughout the 1990’s has stimulated a transition to farm ...
