Robust production scheduling in open-pit mining under uncertainty: a box counterpart approach

A. Alipour; A. A. Khodaiari; A. Jafari; R. Tavakkoli-Moghaddam

Volume 8, Issue 2 , April 2017, , Pages 255-267


  Open-Pit Production Scheduling (OPPS) problem focuses on determining a block sequencing and scheduling to maximize Net Present Value (NPV) of the venture under constraints. The scheduling model is critically sensitive to the economic value volatility of block, block weight, and operational capacity. ...  Read More

Estimation of groundwater inflow situation using fuzzy logic: a case study (Beheshtabad water conveying tunnel, Iran)

M. Doustmohammadi; A. Jafari; O. Asghari

Volume 7, Issue 2 , July 2016, , Pages 229-238


  Water inflow is one of the most important challenges in the underground excavations. In addition to inducing working conditions and environmental problems, it decreases the stability and quality of the surrounding rocks. The direct method of measuring rock mass hydraulic conductivity consists of drilling ...  Read More
