Bonded Block Model with Cable Ground Support

Cable elements in 3DEC may be assigned a tensile yield force limit and an axial rupture strain in order to simulate cable rupture. 3DEC can also simulate the shearing resistance along the cable length between the grout and either the cable or the host material.

3DEC 5.2 adds a number of new features for cable bolts, including enhanced information querying and visualization.

This video shows a cross-section of a tunnel with the rock displacements (gray-scale) indicating ground damage and bulking, cable axial forces (bar chart), and cable state.
