Joint Structure Continuity

Joint Continuity can be defined in the Joint Properties tab in the Input Data dialog. There are three Continuity options:

  • Infinite
  • Persistence
  • Trace Length

Infinite

There is no limit on joint lengths; they may be infinitely long. Wedges are scaled down only to the maximum size for the tunnel.

Persistence

Joint Persistence represents the maximum joint length as measured in any direction on a wedge sliding plane. Joints can be limited by a user-defined Persistence value.

Trace Length

Joint Trace Length represents the exposed trace length of a joint as measured on the boundary face. Joints can be limited by a user-defined Trace Length.

You can add variability to Persistence or Trace Length in a Probabilistic Analysis through the Statistic > Joint Properties Joint Properties Icon option in the Joint Properties Statistics dialog.

NOTE: In order to define Persistence or Trace Length as a random variable in the Joint Properties Statistics dialog, you must first set Continuity to either Persistence or Trace Length in the Input Data dialog.
