Numerical modelling of a discontinuous medium has gained much popularity in recent decades. The combined finite-discrete element method (FEM/DEM) is a state-of-the-art numerical modelling technique pioneered in the mid-1990s. Y2D is a robust two-dimensional FEM/DEM research code developed by Munjiza in 2004. The major limitations of this code are (1) the(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)
