Rock Bursts

The intergration of seismic monitoring with numerical modelling
Introduction Numerical modelling of rock-mass response to underground excavations is of vital importance for the decision-making process in designing and running a mine. Likewise, seismic monitoring with state-of-the- art local seismic

Seismology for rockburst prevention control and prediction 2
This final report on the SIMRAC project GAP409 presents a method (SOOTHSAY) for predicting larger mining induced seismic events in gold mines, as well as a pattern recognition algorithm (INDICATOR) for characterising the seismic response

Rockburst source studies-small particle formation
The research project comprising GAP 524 involved detailed examination of a group of 3 rockburst ruptures or burst-fractures discovered in a VCR stope panel on a peninsular remnant on Mponeng Mine at a depth of 2550m below surface. A
Rockburst site response criteria for support design 2
The objective of this investigation is to improve worker safety through a better understanding of mine excavation response to rockbursts. The improved understanding should lead to improved mine layout and support design. The
