Unformatted text preview: CIVL2002 Engineering Geology and Rock Mechanics Review of Analytic Geometry for Lines and Planes in Cartesian Coordinate System Tutorial Q2 This photograph shows many discontinuities in a rock mass in Hong Kong Mathematical Model of Discontinuities For simplicity and to be easy in mathematical representation, a discontinuity is generally assumed to be of a geometry of straight plane. A Rock Mass Block A straight plane to represent a discontinuity 1. In this tutorial, we are going to present a brief review on the Analytic Geometry for mathematical representation of straight lines and planes in two and three-dimensional space. 2. Such knowledge are useful in understanding and examining discontinuities in rock mechanics. Objective Two-dimensional Coordinate Systems 1. Cartesian coordinate system O I x y II III IV M ( x , y ) x-a xis = Horizontal axis- infinity < x < + infinity y-a xis = Vertical axis- infinity < y < + infinity 2. Polar coordinate system O x r M ( r , ϕ ) ϕ = hoop angle 0 ≤ ϕ < 360 (2 π ) r-a xis = radial axis 0 ≤ r < + infinity ϕ 3. Relationship between Cartesian and Polar coordinate systems O x y II III IV M ( x , y ) = r M ( r , ϕ ) ϕ ϕ ϕ sin cos r y r x = = 2 2 y x r + = < + > = arctan arctan x for x y x for x y π ϕ 4. Parallel Translation of Cartesian coordinate system O x y M ( x , y ) O’ ( g, h ) X Y 1. The coordinates for the point O’ in the original coordinate is ( g, h ). 2. So, we have the relations between the original coordinates ( Oxy ) and the new coordinates (O’XY)are x = X + g y = Y + h Three-dimensional Coordinate Systems 1. Cartesian coordinate system O x z M ( x , y, z ) x-a xis and y-axis = two perpendicular horizontal axes-infinity < x < + infinity; -infinity < y < + infinity z-a xis = Vertical axis- infinity < z < + infinity y M’ ( x , y, 0) M z (0, 0 , z ) M x ( x , 0 , 0) M y (0, y, 0) 2.
