A baked anode is made of a complex material, obtained by mixing and baking different petrol coke grains, with different size distributions, with a pitch. Hydro PMT needs to study how cracks propagate in such a material – both within and between grains. Representing properly the non-spherical grain shapes, as well as the porosity, both between grains and within the coke grains, are therefore prerequisites.
This webinar will review and demonstrate the Itasca Constitutive Model for Advanced Strain Softening (IMASS) which has been developed to represent the rock mass response to excavation induced stress changes.
Bruno Figueiredo is a B.Sc. Civil Engineer with M.Sc. in Structural Engineering and Ph.D. in Geophysics/Rock Mechanics.
