Towards Estimating Friction Factors of Mine Drifts from Low Density Point Clouds
The standard for estimating roughness for the purposes of underground mine ventilation planning is to choose values found in a variety of textbooks that attempt to match the excavation type. These values are then used in ...
A Bayesian Approach to Convergence Detection in Underground Excavations using LiDAR
This thesis deals with the subject of convergence detection in underground excavations --- typically mining operations. Traditional methods for convergence monitoring involve operose surveying procedures that produce ...
The Economic Case for Electric Mining Equipment and Technical Considerations Relating to their Implementation
Underground hardrock mining can be very energy intensive and in large part this can be attributed to the power consumption of underground ventilation systems. In general, the power consumed by a mine’s ventilation system ...
