Book Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design

Download or read book Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design written by John Read and published by CSIRO PUBLISHING. This book was released on 2009-11-09 with total page 511 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design is a comprehensive account of the open pit slope design process. Created as an outcome of the Large Open Pit (LOP) project, an international research and technology transfer project on rock slope stability in open pit mines, this book provides an up-to-date compendium of knowledge of the slope design processes that should be followed and the tools that are available to aid slope design practitioners. This book links innovative mining geomechanics research into the strength of closely jointed rock masses with the most recent advances in numerical modelling, creating more effective ways for predicting rock slope stability and reliability in open pit mines. It sets out the key elements of slope design, the required levels of effort and the acceptance criteria that are needed to satisfy best practice with respect to pit slope investigation, design, implementation and performance monitoring. Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design comprises 14 chapters that directly follow the life of mine sequence from project commencement through to closure. It includes: information on gathering all of the field data that is required to create a 3D model of the geotechnical conditions at a mine site; how data is collated and used to design the walls of the open pit; how the design is implemented; up-to-date procedures for wall control and performance assessment, including limits blasting, scaling, slope support and slope monitoring; and how formal risk management procedures can be applied to each stage of the process. This book will assist in meeting stakeholder requirements for pit slopes that are stable, in regards to safety, ore recovery and financial return, for the required life of the mine.

Book excerpt: Landslides and Their Control provides information on slope stability; the origin of slope movements; and methods on how they are investigated, controlled, and prevented. The book covers topics such as soil and rock mechanics; the influence of ground water on landslides; as well as other factors that produce sliding movement. The book also includes the different types of landslides as well as examples from different territories; its investigation, interpretation of stability, and stability analysis; and corrective measures involved. The monograph is recommended for geologists who would like to know more about the nature of landslides and how they can be prevented, especially those who work in service for the government.

Book Introduction to the Physics of Landslides

Download or read book Introduction to the Physics of Landslides written by Fabio Vittorio de Blasio and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2011-05-13 with total page 408 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Landslides represent one of the most destructive natural catastrophes. They can reach extremely long distances and velocities, and are capable of wiping out human communities and settlements. Yet landslides have a creative facet as they contribute to the modification of the landscape. They are the consequence of the gravity pull jointly with the tectonic disturbance of our living planet. Landslides are most often studied within a geotechnical and geomorphological perspective. Engineering calculations are traditionally applied to the stability of terrains. In this book, landslides are viewed as a physical phenomenon. A physical understanding of landslides is a basis for modeling and mitigation and for understanding their flow behavior and dynamics. We still know relatively little about many aspects of landslide physics. It is only recently that the field of landslide dynamics is approaching a more mature stage. This is testified by the release of modelling tools for the simulation of landslides and debris flows. In this book the emphasis is placed on the problems at the frontier of landslide research. Each chapter is self-consistent, with questions and arguments introduced from the beginning.

This book was released on 2012-08-10 with total page 236 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume focuses on new challenges in distributed Information Filtering and Retrieval. It collects invited chapters and extended research contributions from the DART 2011 Workshop, held in Palermo (Italy), on September 2011, and co-located with the XII International Conference of the Italian Association on Artificial Intelligence. The main focus of DART was to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on intelligent techniques and applied to real-world applications. The chapters of this book present a comprehensive review of related works and state of the art. Authors, both practitioners and researchers, shared their results in several topics such as "Multi-Agent Systems", "Natural Language Processing", "Automatic Advertisement", "Customer Interaction Analytics", "Opinion Mining".

Book Orogenies of Light

Download or read book Orogenies of Light written by Richard Leviton and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2019-10-29 with total page 1015 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ONE DAY IN 2084 EARTH’S ORIGINAL MOUNTAINS SUDDENLY REAPPEARED ON THE PLANET—AS 85,000 DOMED CANOPIES OF LIGHT FROM THE STARS. The story of this return is told by Blaise, a well-informed but mysterious figure who claims to be an engineer 134 years old and part of an ancient team that first designed the planet. It’s a chronicle of his last field assignment, a unique career retrospective, and a firsthand account of the momentous return of the domes. These are giant half-spheres of Light that originally helped create the biosphere and were the Earth’s first mountains. They generated the Earth’s sacred sites and the mythic homes of the gods and linked them all in a global pattern of Light. The domes arrived all at once and started to reorganize the global landscape. It was their fourth visit, and it would be several perilous years as the planet adjusts to it. Blaise and his team of geomancers travel across the Earth and time to deal with the unprecedented perturbations set in motion by this celestial rescue of the planet. Problems are rife—the revolt of Pan and the Nature Spirits, the continuing dark interference by humanity’s ghostly forebears, the resurgence of Babylon and its imperious agenda, and the planet’s dangerous drift towards becoming flattened like a hockey-puck. But the opportunities are fabulous too as the planet enters an era of unceasing Light and beatific conditions. The return of the domes lays bare the true history of the Earth, how it diminished from perfection, the benign superintendents of this bold experiment, and who its earliest inhabitants were and the massive problems they created which still affect us today. It is a genuinely apocalyptic moment, as the Earth reveals its original bright pattern of energy and consciousness and starts at last to fulfill its destiny.

Book Ramayana the Hymns of Himalaya

Download or read book Ramayana the Hymns of Himalaya written by Akhilesh Gumashta and published by Prabhat Prakashan. This book was released on 2020-09-15 with total page 1001 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: vital force is spirituality and so India to survive; must have perpetual flow of spirituality and the rains of hymns of Ramayan will sure make this flow more lively. Cross culture respect is the Spiritual philosophy of India. May the present work prove to be the medium of interfaith movements. Ramayana; is one of the ancient epic known to the historic footings of the mankind. Ralph Griffith writes 'even far inferior poetic powers are; I think; much more Homeric than any literary prose.' So this poetic expression; first of its kind in English; as should have inherent power to penetrate through soul; will sure permeate into the mind of the reader. These verses are the outcome of thorough study of Valmiki Ramayana and its offsprings in various languages of India. Poet has versified his Bhakti following the meters and Vowel-marks (Matras) as followed by Goswamiji in his couplets; quadruplets; Stanzas & Distiches. Bhakti is the manforce behind and so; should these verses have more impact. This book will sure be an asset to the readers and will guide them in various epochs of their lives.
