Effects of geometrical and geomechanical properties on slope stability of open-pit mines using 2D and 3D finite difference methods

H. Zebarjadi Dana; R. Khaloo Kakaie; R. Rafiee; A.R. Yarahmadi Bafghi

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 941-957


  Slope stability analysis is one of the most important problems in mining and geotechnical engineering. Ignoring the importance of these problems can lead to significant losses. Selecting an appropriate method to analyze the slope stability requires a proper understanding of how different factors influence ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 2 , July 2011, , Pages 118-125


  Ultimate limits of an open pit, which define its size and shape at the end of the mine’s life, is the pit with the highest profit value. A number of algorithms such as floating or moving cone method, floating cone method II and the corrected forms of this method, the Korobov algorithm and the corrected ...  Read More
