Study on the breaking process of jointed rock mass by disc cutters based on digital image correlation and infrared thermography
School of Civil Engineering, Chongqing University, Chongqing, China
Jointed rock masses are frequently encountered during the TBM excavation. To investigate the rock breakage mechanism of jointed rock mass by disc cutter and precursory information before rock failure, a series of indentation tests were performed on shear rheological test system. During the test, breaking process of specimens were recorded by digital image correlation system and thermal infrared imager simultaneously. Therefore, the strain fields and thermal infrared images of jointed rock mass by disc cutters were obtain. The experimental results show that the failure process of jointed rock mass can be divided into four stages: compaction stage, linear elastic stage, residual failure transition stage and post-failure stage. Besides, the characteristic of strain fields shows a good accordance with that of infrared radiation temperature fields at each stage. The failure of rock samples is dominated by shear failure, and the localized temperature rise is an important infrared precursor of rock fracture and instability. The experimental results are of great significance to the deep understanding of the breaking mechanism of jointed rock mass and warnings of engineering disasters.
