  1. 1. Towards Discrete Element Modelling of Rock Drilling

    Author : Albin Wessling; Simon Larsson; Pär Jonsén; Jörgen Kajberg; Bengt Wikman; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; DEM Rock Dynamic Drilling; Hållfasthetslära; Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : The method of percussive rotary drilling is recognized as the most efficient method for hard rock drilling. Despite the clear advantages over conventional rotary meth-ods, there are still uncertainties associated with percussive rotary drilling. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel methods for 3-D semi-automatic mapping of fracture geometry at exposed rock faces

    Author : Quanhong Feng; KTH; []
    Keywords : 3-D laser scanner; close-range photogrammetry; engineering geology; fracture geometry; fracture mapping; rock engineering; rock faces; rock mechanics; three-dimension; total station;

    Abstract : To analyse the influence of fractures on hydraulic andmechanical behaviour of fractured rock masses, it is essentialto characterise fracture geometry at exposed rock faces. Thisthesis describes three semi-automatic methods for measuring andquantifying geometrical parameters of fractures, and aims tooffer a novel approach to the traditional mapping methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design of grout curtains under dams founded on rock

    Author : Suihan Zhang; Fredrik Johansson; Johan Funehag; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Grout curtains; Rock grouting; Dams; Erosion; Infilling materials in rock fractures; Injekteringsridåer; Berginjektering; Dammar; Erosion; Sprickfyllnadsmaterial; Soil and Rock Mechanics; Jord- och bergmekanik;

    Abstract : Grouting has long been implemented as a ground improvement technique to reduce the seepage through the rock mass. Grout curtains are usually constructed under dams as a barrier to prevent leakage from the reservoir. So far, the grout curtains under dams have mainly been designed by using an empirical design approach. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical prediction of wear in industrial raw material flow

    Author : Dan Forsström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hållfasthetslära; Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Abrasive wear is largely involved in many industrial processes, and has far reaching economic consequences which involve not only the costs of replacement, but also the costs involved in machine downtime and lost production. Constructions and machines like conveyers, chutes and dumper truck bodies are often exposed to abrasive wear during handling of industrial raw granular material flow e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mechanical and Hydromechanical Behaviour of Hard Rock Joints. A laboratory study

    Author : Roger Olsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : laboratory shear tests; constant normal stiffness; rock mechanics; hydromechanical behaivour; rock joints; replicas;

    Abstract : As a consequence of rock engineering works, the rock mass will deform due to stress changes. Most deformation occurs in the rock joints, in form of normal and shear strains. These deformations will also change the void geometry and thereby the joint aperture and fluid flow. READ MORE
