COURSE: Managing Seismic Risks in Underground Mines Short Course
|Managing Seismic Risks in Underground Mines Short Course : This course is designed to introduce mine geotechnical engineers to basic mine seismology concepts and their application in mining.
Hard rock mines in deep and high-stress environments
often require the use of seismic systems to enable
operators to manage seismic risk posed to the workforce,
the mining investment and the environment. Seismic
data is also used in assessing the rock mass response to
mining activities where source parameters are used in
the interpretation of rock mass failure mechanisms, the
calibration of numerical modelling, and the interpretation
of failure mechanics of the rock mass.
This course is designed to introduce mine geotechnical
engineers to basic mine seismology concepts and their
application in mining. Geotechnical engineers who work
on medium to high risk seismic mines would benefit most
from this course.
Course topics include:
Intact rock strength
Spatial seismic analysis
Seismic hazard assessment
