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


  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

A Stochastic Model Upgrading Gold Content in Cyanide Leaching using Monte Carlo Simulation

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

Probabilistic Prediction of Acid Mine Drainage Generation Risk Based on Pyrite Oxidation Process in Coal Washery Rejects - A Case Study

F. Hadadi; B. Jodeiri Shokri; M. Zare Naghadehi; F. Doulati Ardejani

Volume 12, Issue 1 , January 2021, , Pages 127-137


  In this paper, we investigate a probabilistic approach in order to predict how acid mine drainage is generated within coal waste particles in NE Iran. For this, a database is built based on the previous studies that have investigated the pyrite oxidation process within the oldest abandoned pile during ...  Read More

Rock Mechanics
A New Stability Approach using Probabilistic Profile along Direction of Excavation

A. Turanboy; E. Ülker; C. Burak Küçüksütçü

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 1-20


  Estimation of the possible instability that may be encountered in the excavation slope(s) during the planning and application steps of the rock excavation processes is an important issue in geoengineering. In this paper, a modelling method is presented for assessing the probability of wedge failure involving ...  Read More

A Monte Carlo simulation technique for assessment of earthquake-induced displacement of slopes

H. Fattahi; N. Babanouri; Z. Varmaziyari

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 959-966


  The dynamic response of slopes against earthquake is commonly characterized by the earthquake-induced displacement of slope (EIDS). The EIDS value is a function of several variables such as the material properties, slope geometry, and earthquake acceleration. This work is aimed at the prediction of EIDS ...  Read More

Probabilistic analysis of stability of chain pillars in Tabas coal mine in Iran using Monte Carlo simulation

M. Najafi; Seyed M. E. Jalali; F. Sereshki; A. Yarahmadi Bafghi

Volume 7, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 25-35


  Performing a probabilistic study rather than a determinist one is a relatively easy way to quantify the uncertainty in an engineering design. Due to the complexity and poor accuracy of the statistical moment methods, the Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) method is wildly used in an engineering design. In ...  Read More
