This publication comprises the 7 keynote papers written via the specialists, overseas well known researchers and experts and seventy three technical papers which replicate the state-of-the-practice at the research of Discontinuous Deformation: New improvement and purposes. those papers have been chosen after a rigorous evaluate procedure. It represents the newest advances in numerical and analytical equipment regarding rock mechanics and engineering. Following the culture of the sequence, the most schemes of the papers are at the key block thought and its engineering purposes, the discontinuous deformation research (DDA) process and the numerical manifold process (NMM). even if, different suitable themes, for instance, the distinct/discrete aspect procedure, the meshless technique, the finite point process in rock mechanics and engineering purposes also are incorporated. For rock lots the place the discontinuities dominate their behaviour in a rock engineering process similar to rock slopes and underground rock caverns, the research of discontinuous deformation is of severe significance within the balance research and engineering layout. it's was hoping that this e-book serves as an invaluable reference for either researchers and engineers at the new advancements and functions of a number of the on hand modeling concepts and instruments during this more and more vital box of rock mechanics and engineering. subject matters lined: * Key Block thought and Engineering purposes * Discontinuous Deformation research (DDA) process * Numerical Manifold procedure (NMM) * Distinct/Discrete point approach (DEM) * software of UDEC, 3DEC and PFC codes * Meshless process and Rock Engineering purposes * touch Algorithms * Wave Propagation via Rock Joint and Jointed Rock Mass * Deformation research of Heterogeneous fabrics * different complex Analytical and Numerical equipment in Rock Engineering * Experimental thoughts and dimension of Discontinuous Deformation * Case reviews and different proper issues

For illustration purpose, a problem with a tree-shaped crack under bi-axial tension in a finite plate shown in Fig. 5(a) is examined here. The detailed description of the parameters used in the computation can refer to Ref. [14]. The regular mathematical covers for the central part of the problem are depicted in Fig. 5(b). The convergence of the stress intensity factors (SIFs) at crack tip D can be easily observed when the mathematical covers are gradually refined (Fig. 5(c)). 0 (d) Figure 5. Modeling a tree-shaped crack with the NMM: (a) a problem with a tree-shaped crack; (b) part of the mathematical covers; (c) SIFs at crack tip D.

2) Stresses Distribution Besides of the deformation features, the stresses distribution in block system, induced by the high speed landslide, has also been obtained by DDA. It is shown that the stresses in the landslide, after the slipping process finished, present a discontinuous feature. e. the front, the rear, and the surface of the landslide, 33 Analysis of Discontinuous Deformation: New Developments and Applications material there presents a broken state, the stresses are normally small. In the lower part of the landslide, especially in the area near to the bottom of the river bed, the crash of rock blocks induced a much higher stresses with the maximum value of 6–7 MPa, and the principal stress orientation parallel to the bottom boundary in majority.

Naturally, in the practical rockfall simulation, it is necessary to consider both (1) and (2). However, in order to elevate the reliability of the rockfall simulation, it is necessary to clarify hereafter the determination method of the factor corresponding to the field conditions such as the bare rock or the soil and sand, the measuring method of roughness and the method reflecting the analysis mesh etc. Moreover, although it does not mention in this paper, the occurring place of rockfall, the influence of the initial velocity on the results are unexpectedly very important.
