From the content:

  • Description of the phenomenon of self-sealing in swelling rock
  • Stress-displacement behavior of jointed rock with special consideration of dilatant displacements of the interfaces
  • Homogeneous models for the steady seepage flow and capillary water absorption in jointed rock and coupling of both models
  • Law for anisotropic swelling, swelling parameters as a function of water absorption
  • 3D-FE program system for coupling the stress-displacement behavior, the transient water transport and the swelling of or in jointed rock
  • Parameter study and calculation examples for self-sealing
