  1. 1. Rock Mechanical Consequences of Refrigeration. A Study Based on a Pilot Scale Rock Cavern

    Author : Lars-Olof Dahlström; [1992]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; temperature decrease; tensile strength; thermomechanical loading; compressive strength; Poisson s ratio; thermal contraction; rock caverns; rock mass deformation; Young s modulus;

    Abstract : The deformation of a rock mass due to temperature decrease below freezing is very complex, since many factors are involved; thermal strain, strain due to stress change, stress re-distribution, ice formation and the temperature dependency of rock mechanical and thermo-physical properties. The objective of this study was to achieve a better understanding of the rock mass response to thermo-mechanical loading when storing low temperature products in rock caverns excavated in hard crystalline rock masses.

  2. 2. Evaluation of rock mass strength criteria

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Catrin Edelbro; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : Knowledge of the rock mass behaviour in general, the failure process and the strength in particular, is important for the design of all kinds of underground excavations. One of the most common ways of estimating the rock mass strength is by using a failure criterion. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis of Excavation Damage, Rock Mass Characterisation and Rock Support Design using Drilling Monitoring

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Jeroen van Eldert; Håkan Schunnesson; Daniel Johansson; David Saiang; Thomas Dalmalm; [2018]

    Abstract : Prior to an underground excavation a site investigation is carried out. This includes reviewing and analysing existing data, field data collected through outcrop mapping, drill core logging and geophysical investigations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Rock Mass Response to Coupled Mechanical Thermal Loading Äspö Pillar Stability Experiment, Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Byggvetenskap

    Author : J. Christer Andersson; Håkan Stille; Charles Fairhurst; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Yielding; Spalling; Rock mass strength; Confinement; Fracturing; Tensile failure; Shear failure; Displacement; Acoustic Emission; Heating; Stress; Back calculation; Radial expansion; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Geoengineering and mining engineering Mining engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Geoteknik och gruvteknik Gruvteknik;

    Abstract : The geological disposal of nuclear waste, in underground openings and the long-term performance of these openings demand a detailed understanding of fundamental rock mechanics. A full scale field experiment: Äspö Pillar Stability Experiment was conducted at a depth of 450 m in sparsely fractured granitic rock to examine the rock mass response between two deposition holes.

  5. 5. Listening to the story of the rock mass The integration of conventional and unconventional data to understand rock mass behaviour at the Kiirunavaara Mine

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Jessica Vatcher; Stephen D McKinnon; Jonny Sjöberg; Dick Stacey; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : The need to understand rock mass behaviour has never been greater; as mining globally progresses deeper to extract the precious resources humankind needs to maintain and forward our lives, we encounter rock behaviours associated with deep mining. These environments typically experience seismicity (including fault slip), rock bursting, strain bursting, spalling, aseismic movement along pre-existing discontinuities, and ground falls. READ MORE
