For my studies I am looking for a software to simulate the fracture deformation of a triaxially loaded rock. In the attachment you can see a short sketch of the experimental procedure. In a first step, an all-sided load is applied to the specimen. Then the vertical force is increased, a crack is formed, which eventually leads to the failure of the specimen.
I have not found any more detailed information on the subject on the homepage. Only the benchmark “Linear, single fracture” represents a crack opening (mode 1). However, what I want to represent is a shear deformation (mode 2) of a brittle material.
Is OGS able to simulate such behavior?
