  • A stochastic integrated simulation and mixed integer linear programming
           optimisation framework for truck dispatching problem in surface mines
    • Authors: Ali Moradi-Afrapoli, Hooman Askari-Nasab
      Pages: 257 - 284
      Abstract: Making near optimal and close to reality decisions on the destination of trucks is vital for maximising the utilisation of truck and shovel fleets and subsequently minimising the operating costs in surface mines. We developed an integrated simulation and optimisation framework for solving truck dispatching problems in surface mines. The developed framework uses simulation modelling to imitate mining operations and capture technical uncertainties. It also applies uncertainty-based mixed integer linear optimisation modelling to dispatch trucks while capturing practical uncertainties. The developed optimisation model simultaneously optimises truck fleet utilisation, shovel fleet utilisation, and plant feed rate. The model considers the stochastic nature of the dispatching parameters and includes travel time uncertainties in the decision-making procedure. A comparison between the application of the developed optimisation model with a currently in the market optimisation model using the developed integrated simulation and optimisation framework showed 11% improvement in the production of the case study.

  • Prediction of rock properties using grinding characteristics of ball mill
    • Authors: Karra Ram Chandar, Akarapu Umamahesh, Kashetti Prudhvi Kumar, Durgam Avinash
      Pages: 285 - 305
      Abstract: Knowledge of physico-mechanical properties of rocks is essential starting from the preliminary exploration to processing in mining projects. The strength properties of rocks considered necessary for mine planning and design, selection of equipment, use of suitable processing technique, etc. Sophisticated laboratory facilities are required to determine various properties of rocks using some international standards like ISRM, ASTM, etc., which is time consuming and costly affair. In this study, an attempt is to predict some of the rock properties like density, tensile strength using grinding characteristics of ball mill. Laboratory experiments conducted on samples of granite, limestone, slate and BHQ varying different parameters like quantity of feed, charge ratio, size of balls, grinding time, etc., at constant RPM of ball mill. Grinding characteristic curves used to obtain 25%, 50%, 80% cumulative passing sieve sizes. In addition, laboratory experiments carried out to find physico-mechanical properties like density, tensile strength, Protodyakonav's strength index, rebound hardness number. Regression analysis carried out with the data obtained from experiments.

  • Stress distribution and failure characteristics of deep inclined seam and
           overhead mining along strike longwall floor
    • Authors: Fengda Zhang, Baohong Shen, Wenyan Guo
      Pages: 306 - 322
      Abstract: Based on a case study, this paper presents the stress distribution characteristics and plastic zone distribution characteristics of a deep inclined seam and overhead mining along strike longwall (ICMSL) floor by considering the results from numerical simulations, theoretical calculations, and field measurements. The results show that the vertical taper structure is formed by the roof, the interconnection, and the maingate. The vertical taper structure is formed by the floor, the face, and tailgate. The movement and deformation are mutually restricted by the vertical taper structure, which leads to the stress concentration of vertical stress and maximum shear stress. The maximum failure depth is 20 m, and the failure zone is mainly concentrated in the vicinity of the interconnection and face. The maximum failure depth of the coal seam floor is 21.32 m by theoretical calculation, and between 18.19 m and 20.24 m by in situ field tests.
      Keywords: overhead mining along strike longwall; vertical taper structure; slip line field theory; failure depth; coal seam floor

  • Relationship of coefficient of restitution and damping coefficient of rock
    • Authors: O. Arowojolu, S.J. Jung, A.M. Abu Abdo
      Pages: 323 - 337
      Abstract: When rock travels through an ore pass, it falls, hits other rock materials, and ore passes walls. It is essential to understand the material flow and rock particle interactions in an ore pass to avoid hang-ups and accidents involving rock flow. Part of that understanding is to comprehend how rock reacts when it collides with other particles and other materials. It is difficult to determine the coefficient of restitution and the damping coefficient experimentally simultaneously. The objective of this study was to investigate the relation between the two parameters and determine their correlation mathematically. While it is difficult to measure the damping coefficient of rocks in a laboratory directly, results showed that it could be determined mathematically using the coefficient of restitution. Thus, it facilitates the use of rock flow dynamics simulation programs. Furthermore, the analysis showed that the coefficient of restitution exponentially decayed as the damping coefficient increased.

  • Evaluation of blast fragmentation and its benefits: a review of the
           paradigm and ambiguity
    • Authors: Shaib Abdulazeez Shehu, Mohd Hazizan Mohd Hashim
      Pages: 338 - 358
      Abstract: Wrong blasting can lead to various degrees of inefficiencies in the subsequent mining processes. It is therefore necessary to constantly evaluate blast results and optimise the process. Good blasting provides cheaper benefits when compared to crushing and grinding. Good blast may be expensive but its technical and economic benefits override such an intensive cost. Blast benefits are based on the size distribution of muckpile and the degree of induced microcracks. The size distribution can be visually accessed qualitatively as either good or poor, and quantitatively by screening or different image analysis techniques. However, screening is the only direct and most accurate method of evaluating fragmentation but not suitable for large projects. Though the microcracks can be seen with a specialised microscope but can only be assessed systematically through the study of production output and energy consumption. This paper reviews the benefits, paradigm and the ambiguity of evaluating blast fragmentation.
      Keywords: comminution; blast geometry; screening; muckpile; blast fragmentation; microcracks; blasting
