  1. 1. EVALUATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE OF ALTERNATE FIBRES FOR SHOTCRETE IN TUNNELS

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Shilpa Anand; [2022]
    Keywords : Shotcrete; Life cycle assessment; Environmental Product Declaration; Global warming potential; steel; basalt and synthetic fibres; flexural strength; energy absorption.;

    Abstract : Tunnels in hard and jointed rock are normally excavated in an arch shape to enable the rock mass to support its weight. Since the beginning of the 1980's, fibre reinforced shotcrete (FRS) in combination with rock bolts have been the dominating support method for hard rock tunnels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental and technical evaluation of cement reduction and test methods for fibre reinforced shotcrete in tunnels

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Elin Brodd; Lina Östlund; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The dominating support method for hard rock tunnels today is use of fibre reinforcedshotcrete in combination with rock bolts. The fibre reinforced shotcretesecures smaller blocks, while rock bolts are used to support larger blocks in therock. Application of shotcrete is done by spraying against the rock surface usingcompressed air. READ MORE

Study of Production Drifts Stability and Assessment of Reinforcement Requirements at LKAB Konsuln Test-Mine Levels 436 and 486 Using Geologic Structures Data, and Modelling Software – Dips and Unwedge:  a Part of dp1 Project (Mine Layout and Technology) of the Sustainable Underground Mining (Sum) Project

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Oludare Joseph Olufe; [2021]
    Keywords : Drift stability analysis; underground excavation reinforcement; underground mining stability assessment; geologic structures; wedges modelling; rock mechanical analysis; Unwedge program; Dips program;

    Abstract : Study of Production Drifts Stability and Assessment of Reinforcement Requirements at LKAB Konsuln Test-Mine Levels 436 and 486 Using Geologic Structures Data, and Modelling Software - Dips and Unwedge:  a Part of dp1 Project (Mine Layout and Technology) of the Sustainable Underground Mining (Sum) Project Oludare Joseph Olufe Global population has been on exponential increase over the past half century. The population explosion is driving massive urbanization and infrastructure developments across the globe, which result in huge demand for metals, especially steel. READ MORE

  4. 4. Laboratory testing of shotcrete with fibres of steel, basalt or synthetic materials

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Muralidharan Rengarajan; [2020]
    Keywords : Fibre reinforced shotcrete; Energy absorption; Residual strength; Fibres; and Laboratory testing;

    Abstract : Shotcrete or sprayed concrete has become an inevitable material for stabilising and supporting hard rock tunnels. To prevent rock block fallouts in the excavated tunnel, shotcrete is pneumatically projected under high pressure on the rock surface. READ MORE

  5. 5. Field damage investigation and evaluation of numerical model using the collected data at Kemi Mine

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Heidi Rikberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Rock mechanics; field damage investigation; damage mapping; evaluation; numerical model; mining;

    Abstract : This Master´s Thesis studies the applicability of existing numerical model to predict the conditions in the drifts at the mine. Damage mapping, covering the existing production levels, has been carried out to study the condition of the surface support, i.e. READ MORE
