Hafeezur Rehman; Ahmad Shah; Mohd Hazizan bin Mohd Hashim; Naseer Muhammad Khan; Wahid Ali; Kausar Sultan Shah; Muhammad Junaid; Rafi Ullah; Muhammad Bilal Adeel

Volume 13, Issue 4 , October 2022, , Pages 973-987

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2022.12294.2231

Abstract
  The major factors affecting tunnel stability include the ground conditions, in-situ stresses, and project-related features. In this research work, critical strain, stress reduction factor (SRF), and capacity diagrams are used for tunnel stability analysis. For this purpose, eighteen tunnel sections are ...  Read More

Application of Stochastic Simulation in Assessing Effect of Particle Morphology on Fracture Characteristics of Sandstone

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

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

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2021.11418.2124

Abstract
  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

Monte Carlo Simulation-Based Uncertainty Integration into Rock Particle Shape Descriptor Distributions

K. Sultan Shah; M. H. Bin Mohd Hashim; K. Sh. Bin Ariffin

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 299-311

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2021.10472.1997

Abstract
  The particles within the rock samples are present in extensive ranges of shapes and sizes, and their characterization and analysis exist with a considerable diversity. The prior research works have appraised the significance of the particle shape types and their effects on the geotechnical structures ...  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

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2020.10082.1945

Abstract
  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

A Preliminary Assessment of Rock Slope Stability in Tropical Climates: A Case Study at Lafarge Quarry, Perak, Malaysia

K.S. Shah; M. H. Mohd Hashim; K.S. Ariffin; N. F. Nordin

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 661-673

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2020.9814.1901

Abstract
  The stability analysis of rock slopes is a complex task for the geotechnical engineers due to the complex nature of the rock mass in a tropical climate that often has discontinuities in several forms, and consequently, in several types of slope failures. In this work, a rock mass classification scheme ...  Read More

Modeling and Optimization of Truck-Shovel Allocation to Mining Faces in Cement Quarry

K. Shah; S. Ur Rehman

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 21-30

https://doi.org/10.22044/jme.2019.8329.1712

Abstract
  Truck and shovel are the most common raw material transportation system used in the cement quarry operations. One of the major challenges associated with the cement quarry operations is the efficient allocation of truck and shovel to the mining faces. In order to minimize the truck and shovel operating ...  Read More
