Selection of practical bench height in open pit mining using a multi-criteria decision making solution

  Determination of practical bench height is an important subject in open pit mining. This subject has always been an issue with different and sometimes conflicting criteria that have to be precisely considered during the mine design process. In this study a multi-expert multi-criteria decision making approach is used to resolve these complexities. In the proposed approach, different bench heights are firstly...

Stability analysis method of perilous rock in source of avalanche

  Perilous rocks are a potential geological disaster on cliffs and/or steep slopes and can initiate avalanches. They are classified into three types: Sliding perilous rocks, toppling perilous rocks and falling perilous rocks. Moreover, two subtypes of toppling perilous rocks are distinguished, one in which the upsetting point is outside of the center of gravity of the perilous rock, and one in which the...
