Evaluating the microscale failure response of various weathering grade sandstone based on microscale observation and microstructural modelling subjected to wet and dry cycles

Kausar Sultan shah; Mohd Hazizan bin Mohd Hashim; Hafeez Ur Rehman; Kamar shah bin Ariffin

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 08 June 2022


  The significance of rock failure can be found from the fact that microfracture genesis and coalescence in the rock mass results in macroscale fractures. Rock may fail due to an increase in the local stress, natural fractures, weathering inducing micro-crack genesis, coalescence, and propagation. Therefore, ...  Read More

K. Sultan shah; M. H. bin Mohd Hashim; H. Rehman; K. S. bin Ariffin

Volume 12, Issue 4 , October 2021, , Pages 969-986


  Indirect tensile testing is used in order to investigate the effect of particle morphology (shape and size) on the various weathering grade sandstone fracture characteristics. Several fracture characteristics are discussed in depth in this work including the fracture length (FL), fracture deviation area ...  Read More

Analysis and Forecast of Mining Accidents in Pakistan

K. Sultan Shah; I. Mithal Jiskani; N. Muhammad Shahani; H. Ur Rehman; N. Muhammad Khan; S. Hussain

Volume 11, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 967-976


  In the mining sector, the barrier to obtain an efficient safety management system is the unavailability of future information regarding the accidents. This paper aims to use the auto-regressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) model, for the first time, to evaluate the underlying causes that affect ...  Read More
