Introduction to the Application of Risk-Based Methods in Underground Mining Geomechanics Workshop : A forum for underground mine workers to discuss: the methods used to design for geotechnical risk Other events...
Within the mining community, geotechnical risk is often underappreciated, sometimes ignored and seldom properly quantified. In all areas of geomechanics, the uncertainty and variability that engineers need to deal with necessitate a rigorous process of quantification or, in the very least, robustly qualifying likelihoods and consequences. There appears also to be a large gap between the state-of-the-art and the state of general practice when it comes to the qualification and quantification of geotechnical risk. The aim of this ACG workshop is to provide a forum for underground mine workers to discuss: the methods used to design for geotechnical risk and those used to manage these risks; to identify shortcomings; and to close the gap between the state-of-the-art and the state-of-practice.
