  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Ore and rock mass characterization using borehole geophysics

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Stefan Wänstedt; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik; Mining and Rock Engineering;

    Abstract : A geophysical log represents the measurement of a geophysical parameter along a borehole, plotted against time or depth. A variety of geophysical logging tools exist that measure different geophysical parameters. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bonded Particle Model for Jointed Rock Mass

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Diego Mas Ivars; Joanne MR Fernlund; John Harrison; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bonded particle model; Smooth-joint contact model; Discrete fracture network; Synthetic rock mass; Jointed rock mass; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Geoengineering and mining engineering Geoengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Geoteknik och gruvteknik Geoteknik;

    Abstract : Jointed rock masses are formed of intact rock and joints. There-fore, proper characterization of rock mass behavior has to consid-er the combined behavior of the intact rock blocks and that of the joints.This thesis presents the theoretical background of the Synthetic Rock Mass (SRM) modeling technique along with example applica-tions.

  4. 4. Rock Mass behavior and Cap Rock Stability at the Malmberget Mine

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Sraj Banda Umar; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : Rock Mass behavior and Cap Rock Stability at the Malmberget MineThe LKAB Malmberget mine is mined using sublevel caving. This mining method requires continuous caving of the hangingwall, which also result in ground deformations on the surface. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tunnel Grouting: Engineering Methods for Characterization of Fracture Systems in Hard Rock and Implications for Tunnel Inflow

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lisa Hernqvist; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fracture system; anisotropy; flow dimension; hydraulic tests; hydraulic aperture; transmissivity; grouting; fractures; rock mass;

    Abstract : In tunnel construction in hard rock, a common method to reduce water inflow is to perform pre-grouting. The grouting design should be adapted to the current rock mass conditions as well as the stated inflow requirement for the tunnel project. READ MORE
