Performance Comparison of Particle Swarm Optimization and Genetic Algorithm for Back-analysis of Soil Layer Geotechnical Parameters

Leila Nikakhtar; Shokroallah Zare; Hossein Mirzaei

Volume 14, Issue 1 , January 2023, , Pages 217-232


  Surface settlement induced by tunneling is one of the most crucial problems in urban environments. Hence, accurate prediction of soil geotechnical properties is an important prerequisite in the minimization of it. In this research work, the amount of surface settlement is predicted using three-dimensional ...  Read More

Reliability Analysis of Surface Settlement caused by Mechanized Tunneling-a Case Study

H. Fattahi; F. Jiryaee

Volume 13, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 201-216


  The surface settlement is an essential parameter in the operation of mechanized tunneling that should be determined before excavation. The surface settlement analysis caused by mechanized tunneling is a geo-technical problem characterized by various sources of uncertainty. Unlike the deterministic methods, ...  Read More

Improved prediction of blast-induced vibrations in limestone mines using Genetic Algorithm

M. Ataei; F. Sereshki

Volume 8, Issue 2 , April 2017, , Pages 291-304


  Like most limestone mines, which produce the raw materials required for cement companies, the transportation cost of the raw materials used in the Shahrood Cement Company is high. It has been tried to build the crushing and grinding plant close to the mine as much as possible. On the other hand, blasting ...  Read More

Application of artificial neural network and genetic algorithm to modelling the groundwater inflow to an advancing open pit mine

S. Bahrami; F. Doulati Ardejani

Volume 6, Issue 1 , January 2015, , Pages 21-30


  In this study, a hybrid intelligent model has been designed to predict groundwater inflow to a mine pit during its advance.
