Assessment of Effect of Rock Properties on Horizontal Drilling Rate in Marble Quarry Mining: Field and Experimental Studies

Mohammad Rezaei; Navid Nyazyan

Volume 14, Issue 1 , January 2023, , Pages 321-339


  Rock drilling is one of the most important processes in the mining operations, which involves high costs. Deep knowledge of the drilling conditions and rock mass properties can help the optimum selection of drilling system, precise determination of type and number of drilling equipment, and accurate ...  Read More

A New Method for Predicting Indirect Tensile Strength of Sandstone Rock Samples

H. Fattahi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 899-908


  The tensile strength (σt) of a rock plays an important role in the reliable construction of several civil structures such as dam foundations and types of tunnels and excavations. Determination of σt in the laboratory can be expensive, difficult, and time-consuming for certain projects. Due ...  Read More

Predicting tensile strength of rocks from physical properties based on support vector regression optimized by cultural algorithm

H. Fattahi; N. Babanouri

Volume 8, Issue 3 , July 2017, , Pages 467-474


  The tensile strength (TS) of rocks is an important parameter in the design of a variety of engineering structures such as the surface and underground mines, dam foundations, types of tunnels and excavations, and oil wells. In addition, the physical properties of a rock are intrinsic characteristics, ...  Read More
