Discrete event simulation is a stochastic mathematical modeling tool. In modern mining operations maximizing the productivity by effective decision making is essential. Discrete event simulation is used to conduct “what if” analysis supporting mining engineers and management in decision making....
Implemented in GoldSim, the consolidation sub-model uses an explicit finite difference method to calculate the void ratio at each time step. Through various validation cases, the consolidation sub-model demonstrates its capability in carrying out both deterministic and stochastic simulations of...
Efforts related to the safety and performance of oil sands tailings storage and transportation facilities have traditionally focused on preventing catastrophic failures. However, a recent death related to ground hazards near oil sands tailings facilities, dykes, and transport systems illustrates...
EVALUATION OF METHODS USED TO ESTIMATE THE REQUIRED THRUST FORCE FOR DIRECT PIPE INSTALLATION WITHIN CLAYEY SOIL BASED ON CASE STUDIESDownload
There is a unique technology called Direct Pipe InstallationTM (DPI) developed by Herrenknecht Tunnelling Systems (Herrenknecht) which is becoming more a prominent construction method in the pipeline crossing industry. This construction technique is completed by connecting a micro tunnel boring...
Unsaturated Flow Model
The un-saturated flow sub-model is based on a previously developed infiltration-drainage model. This research improves the original model by adding capabilities of handling dynamic boundary conditions and inter-layer overflow mechanisms. Additional validation cases are conducted to build...
