Yang and Huang [11] constructed a model for Brazilian disc splitting test using PFC2D, and then it was used to simulate Brazilian splitting test for jointed rock mass specimens and specimen containing a central straight notch, and the influences of joint angles on tensile strength and failure modes were analyzed.
Later, this modelling technique that uses bonded particles was improved and implemented into 2D and 3D particle flow codes PFC2D and PFC3D, respectively.
