The Chuquicamata Underground Project in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile is one of the largest planned mining projects in the world to use the method of block caving with macro-blocks option, to mine out copper ore. VCP-CODELCO (Vice-President Office of the National Copper Corporation of Read more... about Geomechanical evaluation of caving macro-block options at Chuquicamata Underground Project in Chile using three-dimensional numerical modelling

Significant developments in numerical modelling have been achieved during the last decade, but validation of these techniques is required to build up confidence. As these developments represent a significative advance for mining geomechanics, this paper focuses on the application of the Read more... about Estimation of Rock Mass Strength Using the Synthetic Rock Mass (SRM) Approach and Particle Flow Modelling

The Carena project is located at Puerto Belgrano Naval Base in Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires Province in Argentina. The project consists of the temporary watertight closure of dry dock Nº. 2 for maintenance and repair of the dock’s infrastructure. The closure was effected by means of a cellular Read more... about Mechanical characterization of a hydraulic fill sand and FEM simulation of cellular cofferdams at Carena project

Buenos Aires, Argentina, rests on a loess deposit named Pampeano Formation. Foundations of buildings, industrial facilities, major infrastructure projects, metro tunnels and a nuclear power plant lay on this deposit. Pampeano soil is also used as a construction material for sub-bases, fills and Read more... about Small-strain stiffness of the Pampeano Formation
