Time-Dependent Behavior of Saint-Martin-La-Porte Exploratory Galleries: Field Data Processing and Numerical Modeling of Excavation in Squeezing Rock Conditions
Field monitoring programs (e.g., convergence measurements and stress measurements in the support system) play an important role in following the response of the ground and of the support system during and after excavation. They contribute to the adaptation of the excavation and support installation method and the prediction of the long-term behavior. In the context of the Lyon–Turin link project, an access gallery (SMP2) was excavated between 2003 and 2010, and a survey gallery (SMP4) has been excavated since 2017.
Mine Dewatering in a Compartmentalized Hydrogeologic Setting at Sishen Mine in South Africa
Sishen mine in South Africa is one of the largest open-pit iron mines in the world.
Use of a Finite Element Code to Model Complex Mine Water Problems
Numerical models are now used routinely to predict ground-water inflows to both surface and underground mines and to help design dewatering systems.
