Book: Rockbursts in Ostrava Karvina Coalfield ( PNG, 528 kB )

On the occasion the International Symposium ISRM EUROCK 2017, the monograph Rockbursts in Ostrava Karvina Coalfield was published by Institute of Geonics AS CR, supported by the grant AS CR AV21 Natural risk. Monograph deals with the phenomenon of rockburst which has accompanied the coal mining in the Czech part of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin. Next to short overview of the history, the work also focuses on a detailed description of the geological and geomechanical properties of the rock mass, describes the main and typical features of rockbursts and attention is focused on the principles and methods of forecasting and preventing the rockburst. A separate chapter is devoted to familiarizing the reader with some typical examples of rockbursts including the commentary concerning the prevention measures applied. The publication is available in the Institute of Geonics AS CR in Ostrava.

Software: Parallel iterative solver ISOL-2 ( ZIP, 22 kB ) for 3D boundary value problems of elasticity

The code is appropriate for voxel based problems, for example for problems of micromechanics arising from CT scans. The code follows the algorithm of the preconditioned conjugate gradient method and its parallelization is based on Schwarz methods and on a decomposition of the original domain into overlapping subdomains. The communication of parallel processes is realized by message passing given by the MPI standard. License ( TXT, 35 kB ).

Software: SS-MC-NP-A_control ( ZIP, 1 MB ) for solution of a plane strain slope stability benchmark

It is considered a quasistatic elastic-perfectly plastic model contaning the Mohr-Coulomb yield criterion, a nonassociative plastic flow rule and a nonlinear isotropic hardening. The loading process is controlled indirectly through the settlement of the slope top and the gravity load factor is an unknown variable. The problem is discretized by the implicit Euler method in time. For discretization in space, two type of finite elements can be used: linear simplicial elements or 8-noded quadrilateral elements with 3x3 integration quadrature. The code contains an improved return-mapping and consistent tangent schemes. Further, the semismooth Newton method is used for solving nonlinear systems of equations. For more details, we refer to S. Sysala, M. Cermak: Subdifferential-based implicit return-mapping operators in Mohr-Coulomb plasticity. License ( TXT, 35 kB ).

Methodology: The methodology for determining the full tensor of initial stress based on the evaluation of convergence on the tunnel walls ( PDF, 695 kB )

The proposed methodology is based on the currently used methods for the analysis of convergence on one profile of the tunnel. These procedures allow us to gain some initial stress tensor components which are projections of the stress tensor in a plane perpendicular to the tunnel axis. The proposed methodology assumes measurements on the two profiles, which lie on two parallel planes perpendicular to the axis of the tunnel. Such configuration allows us to get the whole initial stress tensor. We work with objects whose size is comparable to the tunnel dimension, so the present methodology increases the reliability of the initial stress estimation. Certificate ( PDF, 1000 kB ).

It is based on the FEM and the corresponding linear system of algebraic equations is solved by the preconditioned conjugate gradient method with the additive two level overlapping Schwarz preconditioner. The stiffness matrix for the coarse problem is created by a new aggregation technique. Both Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions can be applied. In the second case, arising singular system can be efficiently solved making use of projections. Software package contains two codes. The program AGGREG serves for preparation of an aggregated matrix. The code SOLVER_AG is designed for the parallel solution of large linear systems and is parallelized with the aid of OpenMP.

Book: Carbon Dioxide and Rock Massif ( PDF, 7 MB )

Carbon dioxide and rock massif. At these days the sequestration of CO2 into deep aquifers (collectors) still remains very actual. The selection of suitable localities for CO2 sequestration is very difficult and exacting problem. Direct experiences of miners from mines, where the miners come into deep natural collectors of carbon dioxide give good information for selection and methodology for surveying of other localities. Therefore the institute published this monograph about the occurrences of CO2 in rock massif in mines in the area of the Bohemian massif. This monograph sums up and documents the natural conditions of occurrences of this gas in mines in rocks or in the coal seams, which are created by means of natural processes.
