An Investigation into Bench Health Monitoring under Blast Loading in Hoek-Brown Failure Criterion using Finite Difference Method

Seyed A. Mousavi; K. Ahangari; K. Goshtasbi

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022, , Pages 875-889


  Blast and stress release create cracks, fractures, and excavation damage zone in the remaining rock mass. Bench health monitoring (BHM) is crucial regarding bench health and safety in blast dynamic loading. Several empirical criteria have been proposed for a quick estimation of different parameters of ...  Read More

A Comparative Study of Machine Learning Methods for Prediction of Blast-Induced Ground Vibration

A. Srivastava; B. Singh Choudhary; M. Sharma

Volume 12, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 667-677


  Blast-induced ground vibration (PPV) evaluation for a safe blasting is a long-established criterion used mainly by the empirical equations. However, the empirical equations are again considering a limited information. Therefore, using Machine Learning (ML) tools [Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Random ...  Read More

Numerical analysis of energy transmission through discontinuities and fillings in Kangir Dam

A. Siamaki; H. Bakhshandeh Amnieh

Volume 7, Issue 2 , July 2016, , Pages 251-259


  A considerable amount of energy is released in the form of shock wave from explosive charge detonation. Shock wave energy is responsible for the creation of crushing and fracture zone around the blast hole. The rest of the shock wave energy is transferred to rock mass as ground vibration. Ground vibration ...  Read More

Predicting peak particle velocity by artificial neural networks and multivariate regression analysis - Sarcheshmeh copper mine, Kerman, Iran

Hassan Bakhsandeh Amnieh; Alireza Mohammadi; M Mozdianfard

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, , Pages 125-132


  Ground vibrations caused by blasting are undesirable results in the mining industry and can cause serious damage to the nearby buildings and facilities; therefore, controlling such vibrations has an important role in reducing the environmental damaging effects. Controlling vibration caused by blasting ...  Read More
