Slope Design and Implementation in Open Pit Mines: Geological and Geomechanical Approach

Introduction Slopes of mines and quarries, some of which may reach several hundred meters deep, must be regarded as “geotechnical works” in the sense that we speak of mine works … Read More

Developing 3-D mine-scale geomechanical models in complex geological environments, as applied to the Kiirunavaara Mine

Introduction Mining induced rock mass behaviour is a result of the interaction between the mining and geological environments. An understanding of the role of 3-D geomechanical characteristics in rock mass … Read More

An integrated multiscale approach for characterization of rock masses subjected to tunnel excavation

Introduction An in-depth knowledge of the geological aspects of the area in which a tunnel will be excavated is fundamental for optimizing the layout. In fact, costs, duration of the … Read More
