Geotechnical Engineering for Mine Waste Storage Facilities by Geoffrey E. Blight

By Geoffrey E. Blight

The e-book is a complete remedy of the appliance of geotechnical engineering to web site choice, web site exploration, layout, operation and closure of mine waste garage facilities.The point and content material are appropriate as a technical resource and reference for training engineers engaged either within the layout and operational administration of mine waste garage amenities and for senior undergraduate and postgraduate scholars. The 13 chapters persist with the series of the lifestyles cycle of a waste garage facility (characterization, web site choice, geotechnical exploration, environmental facets, trying out and compaction) and likewise contemplate using mine waste as a building material.The textual content is liberally illustrated by means of either line drawings and pictures, and the theoretical passages are supported by way of average attempt effects, labored examples and punctiliously analysed case histories.

Best Practices for Dust Control in Coal Mining

Compiled by means of the U. S. Dept of healthiness and Human companies, CDC/NIOSH workplace of Mine defense and future health learn, this 2010 guide used to be constructed to spot on hand engineering controls which may support the decrease employee publicity to respirable coal and silica dirt. The controls mentioned during this instruction manual diversity from long-utilized controls that experience constructed into criteria to more recent controls which are nonetheless being optimized.

2 Geolo g y Geological maps show the rock formations underlying the site, below the surface soils. These are important as they often influence the type of soil developed on the site. Geological maps will also indicate the presence of features such as faults and dykes. 3 P h ys ic a l g e o g r a p h y The investigation should cover not only the immediate area to be occupied by the proposed waste storage, but also the surrounding area to the extent that it is likely to be affected, or is likely to affect the storage.
