Expected Proportional Hazard Model in Preventive Maintenance

A. Nouri Qarahasanlou; M. Ataei; R. Shakoor Shahabi

Volume 12, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 753-767


  Whether directly in the form of expenses or indirectly, the objective of maintenance in the mining industry is self-evident in time losses and loss of production. In this paper, the reliability-based maintenance is examined with a different insight than before. The system goes back to the Good As New ...  Read More

Application of cut set method to reliability evaluation of mine ventilation networks

Z. Rezaei; M. Ataee-pour; H. Madani

Volume 10, Issue 4 , October 2019, , Pages 947-966


  Providing a fresh and cool airflow in underground mines is one of the main concerns during mining. Destruction of support systems, the presence of undesirable objects in the airway and distortion of airflow are the parameters involved that would result in pressure loss, which would affect the ventilation ...  Read More

Analysis of reliability and maintainability for multiple repairable units (Case study: Sungun copper mine)

R. Razzaghzadeh; R. Shakoor Shahabi; A. Nouri Qarahasanlou

Volume 10, Issue 4 , October 2019, , Pages 1045-1059


  The appropriate operating of mining machines is affected by both the executive and environmental factors. Considering the effects and the related risks lead to a better understanding of the failures of such machines. This leads to a proper prediction of the reliability parameters of such machines. In ...  Read More

Discriminating copper geochemical anomalies and assessment of their reliability using a combination of sequential Gaussian simulation and gap statistic methods in Hararan area, Kerman, Iran

S. Abbaszade; F. Mohammad Torab; A. Alikhani; H. Molayemat

Volume 10, Issue 1 , January 2019, , Pages 75-86


  In geochemical exploration, there are various techniques such as univariate and multivariate statistical methods available for recognition of anomalous areas. Univariate techniques are usually utilized to estimate the threshold value, which is the smallest quantity among the values representing the anomalous ...  Read More

Estimation of reliability-based maintenance time intervals of Load-Haul-Dumper in an underground coal mine

J. Balaraju; M. Govinda Raj; C.H.S.N. Murthy

Volume 9, Issue 3 , July 2018, , Pages 761-770


  Reliability estimation plays a significant role in the performance assessment of mining equipment, and aids in designing efficient and effective preventive maintenance strategies. Continuous and random/irregular occurrence of failures in a system could be the main cause for performance drop of machinery. ...  Read More

Reliability-based maintenance scheduling of powered supports in Tabas mechanized coal mine

Amid Morshedlou; Hesam Dehghani; Seyed Hadi Hoseinie

Volume 5, Issue 2 , July 2014, , Pages 113-120


  Utilizing the gathered failure data and failure interval data from Tabas coal mine in two years, this paper discusses the reliability of powered supports. The data sets were investigated using statistical procedures and in two levels: the existence of trend and serial correlation. The results show that ...  Read More
