Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 86~96
Rock mass classification methods such as RMR, Q system and GSl have been widely adopted with certain modifications for the design of mine openings. The GSI system is the only rock mass classification system that is related to Mohr-Coulomb and Hoek-Brown strength parameters and gives a simple method to calculate the engineering properties of rock masses which can be useful input parameters for a numerical analysis. A detailed surveying for GSI mapping as well as far calculating RMR values was undertaken at Daesung and Pyunghae underground limestone mining sites. RQD values were determined for row locations in these two mining sites. Based on GSI values and intact rock strength properties, the rock mass strength modulus of elasticity as well as the Mohr-Coulomb strength parameter c
were determined. GSI and RMR are correlated.
Assessment of RMR with the Monte Carlo Simulation and Stability Analysis of Rock Slopes
Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 97~107
Various kinds of rock mass properties, which can be obtained from laboratory tests as well as field tests, can be reasonably applied to the design of earth structures. An extrapolation technique can be used for this application and it generally guarantee its quality from a sufficient amount of test results because it is based on the RMR value in most cases. When the confident RMR can not be obtained because of the insufficient testing results, the Monte Carlo Simulation technique can be introduced fer deducing the proper RMR and this assessed RMR can be reused fur the major input parameters. Authors' proposed method can be verified from the comparison between the results of numerical analysis and the evidences of field site.
A Study on the Blasting Dynamic Analysis using the Measurement Vibration Waveform
Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 108~120
Dynamic analysis has been increased recently to analyze the effect of the blasting vibration on the rock mass as well as the surrounding structures. The major input parameter far the general dynamic analysis, however, is merely the blasting pressure which can be obtained from the blasting pressure-time history curves. But in case of the complicate geological condition it is not simple to apply the blasting pressure on the numerical analysis because e ground vibration characteristics should be obtained considering the complexity of ground condition. Therefore the authors tried to use the blasting vibration waveform as an input data This vinylation frequency could be obtained from the test blasting in the Pasir mine, Indonesia. Through the dynamic numerical analysis on the slopes in Pasir, the current situation of this slope could be simulated precisely.
Influence of the Initiation Error of the Delay Detonator on the Rock Fracture Process in Smooth Blasting
Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 121~132
Dynamic fracture processes of rock were analyzed to investigate the influence of the initiation error of the delay detonator in smooth blasting. The analysis models for the smooth blasting considered two blast geometries with three charge holes, and the simultaneous initiations without initiation error, with the initiation error of electronic delay detonator and with the initiation error of pyrotechnically delay detonator(DS detonator) were applied to the charge holes. In order to examine the effect of electronic and DS initiation detonator on the smooth blasting, the fracture process results were analyzed statistically.
A Proposal of the Evaluation Method for Rock Slope Stability Using Logistic Regression Analysis
Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 133~141
Through the many site investigations, different methods for evaluating stability of rock slopes have been proposed. Those methods, however, may lead to different results depending on the subjective judgments associated with the selection of the evaluation items and the application of weighting factor. Accordingly, binary logistic regression analysis was carried out to ensure fair appliction of the weighting factor, leading to an equation for evaluating the stability of rock slopes.
Influence of the Rock Mass Inhomogeneity Caused by Layer Geometry on the Regional Stress Field
Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 142~153
To investigate the influence of the rock mass inhomogeneity caused by layer geometry on the regional stress distribution the cuboid models considering a homogenous rock mass, inhomogeneous rock mass with plane layers and with uneven layers were analyzed and discussed. It was confirmed that the structure and existence of layers in rock mass affected the regional stress distribution. An approach based on an inverse analysis of the measured local stresses and the 3D finite element analysis was suggested, and used to estimate the regional stress field of the homogeneous and inhomogeneous models, which consist of the surface geometry of ground and both the surface and layer geometry respectively. Additionally, the approach of the regional stress considering the layer geometry in the rock mass was verified to estimate the regional stress field for a site.
A Study on the Support System of Large Caverns Under High Initial Stress
Tunnel and Underground Space, volume 14, issue 2, 2004, Pages 154~166
A numerical stability analysis was conducted on the large oil storage caverns excavated in a rock mass under high initial horizonal stress. The behaviors of the surrounding rock mass, rockbolts, and shotcrete were analyzedr and stability of the support members were assessed. For a proper support system design, the effect of the modelling technique, cavern shape and rockbolt length on the stability of the cavern was investigated. Results show that installation timing of supports and the change in cavern shape due to stepwise excavation affect the stress induced in support members. Also found was desperate need for a numerical technique which can properly reflect the behavior of the steel fiber reinforced shotcrete.
