  Support design is the main goal of the Q and rock mass rating (RMR) systems. An assessment of the Q and RMR system application in tunnelling involving high-stress ground conditions shows that the first system is more appropriate due to the stress reduction factor. Recently, these two systems have been ...  Read More

M. Kamran; Sh. Bacha; N. Mohammad

Volume 12, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 619-631


  This paper elucidates a new idea and concept for exploration of the gold ore deposits.  The cyanidation method is traditionally used for gold extraction. However, this method is laborious, time-consuming, costly, and depends upon the availability of the processing units. In this work, an attempt ...  Read More

A State of the art Catboost-Based T-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding Technique to Predict Back-break at Dewan Cement Limestone Quarry

M. Kamran

Volume 12, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 679-691


  The blasting operation is an important rock fragmentation technique employed in several foundation engineering disciplines such as mining, civil, tunneling, and road planning. Back-break (BB) is one of the adverse effects caused by the blasting operations that produces several effects including vulnerability ...  Read More

A Probabilistic Approach for Prediction of Drilling Rate Index using Ensemble Learning Technique

M. Kamran

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 327-337


  Drillability is one of the significant issues in rock engineering. The drilling rate index (DRI) is an important tool in analyzing the drillability of rocks. Several efforts have been made by the researchers to correlate and evaluate DRI of rocks. The ensemble learning methods including the decision ...  Read More
