Dynamic testing of reinforcement systems
The Rock Mechanics Group at the Western Australian School of Mines (WASM) in Kalgoorlie commenced development, design and construction of a unique dynamic testing facility in 2002. The facility isExpand
Static and dynamic testing of steel wire mesh for mining applications of rock surface support
Wire mesh has been used for surface ground support in mining since the 1950s. Experimental studies have been conducted throughout the world. The response of the mesh is dependant on the sample size,Expand
An examination of dynamic test facilities
A critical examination of a number of testing facilities that have been used by the mining industry for the assessment of the dynamic capacity of reinforcing and support elements has been undertaken.Expand
Dynamic Testing of Friction Rock Stabilisers
An extensive axial test program has been used to quantify the difference between the static and dynamic capacities (kN/m of embedment) for friction rock stabilisers once sliding starts. RoughExpand
Development and Implementation of the Garford Dynamic Bolt at the Kanowna Belle Mine
Kanowna Belle Gold Mine is a deep, high-stress, sublevel open stoping mine located near Kalgoorlie. Seismic activity during the development cycle presented problems, including concerns regarding theExpand
Dynamic testing of rock reinforcement systems
Critical discourse analysis, adult education and ‘fitba’
Abstract In this article I will use an example of current adult education practice, the Glory and Dismay Football Literacies Programme (GDFLP) to appraise the value of critical discourse analysisExpand
Sublevel open stoping hanging wall instrumentation program at the Dugald River underground mine
An extensive sub level open stoping (SLOS) rock mass displacement monitoring program was conducted at the MMG Limited Dugald River underground mine as part of a trial stoping program from March toExpand
