Rock Bursts

Influence of regional pillars backfil on local area and internal support
Improved Seismic locations and location techniques
The location of a seismic event is critically important because not only does a good location provide a guide for the rescue effort, but also all other parameters (e.g. moment, and energy) are dependent on it.  Location errors scatter
Implementing mobile crack-counting recordings in stooping
The SIMRAC project COL816 investigated the feasibility of a small, independent device monitoring local seismicity and extracting similar activity information to what can be recorded by a temporary network of seismometers.  To do this
Implementation of state-of-art mining knowlegde
Several new mining, rock engineering and environmental control technologies aimed at improving safety have been developed in the past decade or so. Since several of these developments have either not been implemented properly or only
Identifying of rock mass discontinuities in a cloud of seismic event foci
1. IntroductionA technique to interpret a cluster of seismic events in terms of causative structures is presented. In the application of the procedure, a successful interpretation crucially depends on information on the confidence
Guidelines for safe extraction of remnants
Further validation of bracket pillar design methodology
Design charts for bracket pillar design were developed under a previous SIMRAC projectGAP 223 to provide rock mechanics engineers with an initial estimate of bracket pillarsizes for clearly identified geological discontinuities, based on
Feasibility of mine-wide continuous closure monitoring system
Previous fundamental research projects have indicated the value of continuous closure measurements for improved support design and hazard assessment and for quantifying the effect of seismicity on stope closure. This project examines the
