On the Design and Selection of Vehicle Coordination Policies for Underground Mine Production Ramps
Traffic management in underground mines, especially on production ramps, is a difficult problem to optimize and control. Most operations use one of a few common policies; e.g., the so-called “lock-out” and “loaded-vehicle ...
Fundamental Behaviours Of Production Traffic In Underground Mine Haulage Ramps
Ramps (or declines) are often used in underground mines to transport ore, waste, materials, and personnel. This paper studies mine ramp productivity and presents results from a set of computer simulations designed to model ...
