Large-Strain Generalized Hoek-Brown Solution Method

The latest in RocSupport is the addition of the Large-Strain Generalized Hoek-Brown Solution Method.

The new RocSupport features a new solution method by Vrakas (2016). This new method provides a rigorous closed-form solution for cases with large-strain, non-linear Generalized Hoek-Brown criterion with dilation. The method is suitable for modelling tunnels where very large deformations are observed or expected.

For more information on the method, see the paper published by Apostolos Vrakas in 2016, A finite strain closed-form solution for the elastoplastic ground response curve in tunneling.
