Sliding crack model for nonlinearity and hysteresis in the uniaxial stress-strain curve of rock

David, Emmanuel; Brantut, N; Schubnel, Alexandre; Zimmerman, Robert W.


Uniaxial compression tests on rocks, if conducted at stresses below failure, typically exhibit both non-linearity and hysteresis in the stress-strain curve. In a series of three papers in 1965, Walsh explained this behavior in terms of frictional sliding
