The combined finite-discrete element method (FEM/DEM) is a state-of-the-art numerical modelling technique(More)
The studies of the influences of confining pressure (Pc) on the damage and failure of rocks are valuable for mining activities and hydrocarbon explorations. Often, these activities need geophysical suirveilance and can be monitored by studing the associated seismic energy release (i.e. induced seismicity). For example, in hydraulic fracturing operations,(More)
