To simulate the failure and crack propagation process of shale during Brazilian splitting testing and verify the accuracy of the established brittleness evaluation model, the discrete element method is utilized to establish the Brazilian splitting test model for layered shale and conduct a numerical simulation on the tensile brittle failure of shale.
It is a very straightforward check to perform during the design stage, but if not considered, this can result in an erroneous design which can eventually lead to an undesirable brittle failure. The response of a beam with a departure from this provision is presented to highlight the significance of the problem.
