Collecting information is of vital importance for the development of a mineral project. The capital costs of mining projects are high and there is significant risk due to the available data. At all stages of a project, from exploration to mine closure, decisions need to be made that are based off...
An Improved Approach to Production Planning in Oil Sands Mining Through Detailed Analysis and Simulation of Cycle TimesDownload
The objective of this thesis is to develop, implement and verify a theoretical framework based on detailed analyses and simulation of truck and shovel cycle times in open pit mining, placing an emphasis on the hauling component of the cycle. The goal is to improve the generation of accurate and...
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....
Design, Simulation and Evaluation of Effective Industrial Information Systems: Case of Machine Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Management Information SystemsDownload
Industrial information systems can improve the management of industrial operations by providing relevant and timely information on the status of physical assets via condition and process monitoring systems, and by enabling the effective use of data by systems and processes that restore proper...
Wear is an incredibly complicated phenomenon that can occur in many different forms, through a number of modes, facilitated by a variety of mechanisms. Surface mining operations are particularly afflicted by abrasive wear; principally during the excavation process. Shovel geometry has been...
Chrome carbide samples prepared using submerged arc welding procedures were subjected to physical abrasion testing in a modified machine similar to the ASTM G65 standard, in an investigation of media particle shape contribution to abrasive wear. The primary intent of this study was to determine...
