Evaluation of Effects of Parameters of Blast Damage Factor, Sub-drilling, Decoupling, and Inter-hole Delay Time on Peak Particle Velocity using Numerical Modeling

Bijan Afrasiabian; Kaveh Ahangari; Ali Noorzad

Volume 14, Issue 2 , April 2023, , Pages 545-563


  High-level vibrations caused by blasting operations in open-pit mining can exert adverse effects such as destruction of surrounding surface structures. Therefore, it is essential to identify the factors effective in mitigating the damaging effects of ground vibration in open-pit mines, and monitor them. ...  Read More

An optimal method to design reinforced concrete lining of pressure tunnels

E. Dadashi; A. Noorzad; K. Shahriar; K. Goshtasbi

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 829-837


  The utilization of the lining type in pressure tunnels is highly dependent on the geological and hydraulic conditions. There are two types of lining, namely concrete and steel lining but steel lining is one of the most expensive arrangements. To decrease the length of steel lining in these tunnels, the ...  Read More
