Original Research Paper
Karstic water exploration using the Schlumberger VES and dipole–dipole resistivity profiling surveys in the Tepal area, west of Shahrood, Iran

Alireza Arab-Amiri; Fereydoun Sharifi; Abolghasem Kamkar-Rouhani

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2014, Pages 1-12


  The need for clean groundwater resources to have sustainable development in a country is undoubted. Due to the importance and high quality of karstic waters in supplying water in Iran especially in Shahrood city, it is attempted in this research work to recognize and explore karstic waters in southwest ...  Read More

Case Study
Enhancing magnetic signals in unexploded ordnances (UXO) detection based on edge-preserved stable downward continuation method

Maysam Abedi; Kiomars Mosazadeh; Hamid Dehghani; Ahmad MadanchiZare

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2014, Pages 13-24


  This paper describes an efficient edge-preserved regularization algorithm for downward continuation of magnetic data in detection of unexploded ordnance (UXO). The magnetic anomalies arising from multi-source UXO can overlap at a height over the ground surface, while causative sources may not be readily ...  Read More

S. Hadi Hosseini; Mohammad Ataie; Hamid Aghababaie

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2014, Pages 25-34


  In this paper, after collecting the rock samples from eight mines and one high way slope, the tests for determination of dry density, Uniaxial Compressive Strength, tensile Strength (Brazilian Test), elastic modulus, Schmidt hammer rebound number have been done on samples. In addition, in order to calculating ...  Read More

Case Study
Magnitude of vibration triggering component determines safety of structures


Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2014, Pages 35-46


  Transmission of blast waves is a complex phenomenon and the characteristics vary with blast design parameters and geo-technical properties of medium. Frequency of vibration and triggering component for structural excitation generally quantifies safe vibration magnitude. At closer distance or higher elevations ...  Read More

Case Study
A parametric model for predicting cut point of hydraulic classifiers

Hamid Khoshdast

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2014, Pages 47-54


  A new parametric model was developed for predicting cut point of hydraulic classifiers. The model directly uses operating parameters including pulp flowrate, feed particle size characteristics, pulp solids content, solid density and particles retention time in the classification chamber and also covers ...  Read More

Prediction of recovery of gold thiosulfate on activated carbon using artificial neural networks

Saeed Alishahi; Ahmad Darban; Mahmood Abdollahi

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2014, Pages 55-66


  Since a high toxicity of cyanide which use as a reagent in the gold processing plant, thiosulfate has been recognized as a environmental friendly reagent for leaching of gold from ore. After gold leaching process it's important for recovery of gold from solution using adsorption or extraction methods, ...  Read More
