A Study on the Influence of the Conglomerate Mesostructure on Fracture Failure Behavior Based on Discrete Element Method

Figure 13

Test C crack growth process. The figures show the change trend of the displacement field (Ball displacement_mag) during the crack propagation process of the simulation of the Group C. The black and red lines above the prefabricated crack are the destruction of the bond chain of the bonding elements (balls), which represent the fracture crack.
