Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-2112
... ABSTRACT: Veins, such as those contained within mudrock sequences, provide clear evidence of dilational deformation. A common explanation is that the deformation event involves high pore pressures, with low effective stress leading to natural hydraulic fracturing. The analysis here counters...

Paper Number: ARMA-2019-1954
... ABSTRACT: Intrablock structures such as hydrothermal veins and stockwork have been observed to control additional or delayed development of ground failures in deep mines and tunnels. Key geomechanical parameters for excavation design are typically measured using unconfined compressive...

Paper Number: ARMA-2017-0635
.... In this earlier work, mineralized "veins" were noted to be prevalent and complicated, sometimes being shear weak interfaces while in other cases they were not. This work looks specifically at the formation mechanisms and composition chemistry of the veins, to better understand why some are planes of weakness...

Paper Number: ARMA-2016-769
... Abstract: Veins generate mechanical discontinuities in shale formations due to their strength and stiffness contrast with the rock matrix. These heterogeneities in naturally fractured reservoirs can exert control on hydraulic fracture propagation path as demonstrated in experimental studies...

Paper Number: ARMA-2014-7537
... Abstract The overall strength of a rockmass is determined by the intact rock strength and characteristics of the rockmass structure. In complex rockmasses this structure consists of both joints and other fractures (interblock structure) and intrablock structure such as veins. As excavations...
