Evaluation the Effect of Blast Pattern on Post-Failure Rate around the Miyaneh-Ardabil Railway Tunnel

Sajjad Khalili; Masoud Monjezi; Hasel Amini Khoshalan; Amir Saghatforoush

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 27 January 2024


  Determining the appropriate blasting pattern is important to prevent any damage to the tunnel perimeter in conventional tunneling by blasting operation in hard rocks. In this research work, the LS-DYNA software and numerical finite element method (FEM) are used for simulation of the blasting process ...  Read More

J. Shakeri; H. Amini Khoshalan; H. Dehghani; M. Bascompta; K. Onyelowe

Volume 13, Issue 2 , April 2022, , Pages 375-389


  In this research work, a comprehensive study is conducted to predict flyrock as a typical and undesirable phenomenon occurring during the blasting operation in open-pit mining. Despite the availability of several empirical methods for predicting the flyrock distance, the complexity of flyrock analysis ...  Read More
