  • Dust solution plywood producer - Case study

    Situation A plywood producer with a large street-side chip pile wanted to stop the dusty chips blowing onto and into their neighbours dust-sensitive buildings. The piles are fed by blower stackers which can be directed according to which pile is being filled. Wind was blowing across their plant and buildings then picking up dust off the piles (in strong winds) and from the ...

  • Reliability of Quary Walls Using Finite Element Analysis

    During the last years the Finite Element Method (FEM) is increasingly applied in the design of quay walls. Especially in case of quay walls with relieving floors and bulk-storage as surcharge load, sub-grade reaction models are limited in their accuracy of modelling the situation. The Finite Element Method often is the only option to more detailed design calculations of quay walls. In the recent ...

  • Modelling concrete slab on rigid inclusion reinforced soil - Case Study

    Project Description In the context of a wine cellar extension project, a 20cm thick concrete slab is to be constructed on a soil reinforced by rigid inclusions. Itasca France has been called by the design office to verify the mechanical resistance of the concrete slab and assess its settlement under a uniform load. The inclusions will be installed in a regular pattern. A 2D FLAC ...

  • Tunnelling and reinforcement in heterogeneous ground - A case study

    Abstract A case study of tunnelling in heterogeneous ground conditions has been analysed. The case involves a tunnel excavated in mixed-face conditions, where the main host material was rock, but for a distance of about 30 m, the tunnel had to be driven through a thick layer of soil, primarily moraine and sandy soil materials.During tunnel drifting, a "chimney" cave developed through the ...

  • Quantifying the Effect of Localized Depressurization on a Deep Underground Ore Body at the Mcarthur River Mine through Cross Hole Hydraulic Testing and Groundwater Modeling

    Abstract: The McArthur River mine in northern Saskatchewan is the largest single producer of uranium in the world. Most of the ore is extracted by raisebore mining methods at depths of 530 to 600 m below ground surface where pore pressures in the fractured host sandstone and gneiss are on the order of 5 MPa. Currently, ground freezing is used to isolate the ore from ground-water sources. ...

  • Practical Open Pit Rock Mechanics - Case Study

    Project Description Open pit mining often result in high rock slopes, sometimes combined with difficult rock conditions. This is further augmented by large blasting rounds resulting in high vibrations. Reinforcement of pit slope walls is also difficult and many times associated with high costs and loss of production. Bench slope stability is vital for a safe working place for all personnel ...
