Geotechnical Instrumentation and Monitoring in Open Pit and Underground Mining

Edited By T. Szwedzicki Copyright 1993

    As mining operations increase in scale and mines go progressively deeper, the geotechnical input into mine design is of importance. This book covers topics in geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring, including coverage of groundwater, displacement and environmental monitoring.

    Displacement monitoring; Stress measurement and monitoring; Groundwater monitoring; Blast monitoring; Seismic activity monitoring; Environmental monitoring; & Instrumentation as tool for numerical modelling. The results of instrumentation & monitoring provide a basis for safe production, better resource utilisation & for better environmental control.
