Strength characteristics of transversely isotropic rock materials
Xue-Qiang Yang, Li-Juan Zhang and Xiao-Ming Ji

    For rock materials, a transversely isotropic failure criterion established through the extended Lade-Duncan failure criterion incorporating an anisotropic state scalar parameter, which is a joint invariant of deviatoric microstructure fabric tensor and normalized deviatoric stress tensor, is verified with the results of triaxial compressive data on Tournemire shale. For torsional shear mode with 0
