MISSING :97 pages
Experimental and theoretical investigations pertinent to fracture mechanics and structural modeling associated with energy resource recovery are reported. The experimental studies include the mixed mode as well as crack opening mode fracture toughness characterization of Pennsylvanian age shales as a function of moisture content. The analytical studies include (1) the stress and subsidence analysis of mine systems, (2) coal hydraulic fracture studies with bi-material response evaluation, (3) tailored pulse loading studies, and (4) constitutive modeling.
