Rock-type classification is a challenging and difficult job due to the heterogeneous properties of rocks. In this paper, an image-based rock-type analysis and classification method is proposed. The study was conducted at a limestone mine in western India using stratified random sampling from a case study mine. The analysis of collected sample images was… (More)
This paper proposed a Bayesian method-based structural equation model (SEM) of miners' work injury for an underground coal mine in India. The environmental and behavioural variables for work injury were identified and causal relationships were developed. For Bayesian modelling, prior distributions of SEM parameters are necessary to develop the model. In… (More)
A reliability analysis of a dumper machine is performed using the neural network model. A metaheuristic algorithm is applied for proper parameter selection for the neural network. A time series approach is applied in the reliability analysis to forecast the dumper's future failure time. The time series analysis is performed using the neural network model,… (More)
