Abstract
This numerical study deals with the analysis of rock specimens from a micro-mechanical point of view. The analysis is based on the Finite Element Method (FEM) with fracture-based zero-thickness interface elements, which in previous studies have been used successfully to represent cracks in the simulation of the mechanical behaviour of concrete and other quasi-brittle materials.
