When Hoek-Brown failure-criterion (H-B) is selected, their parameters are determined as the ones that better fit data; therefore, depends on the method of fitting, the experimental error and statistical sufficiency of data. If these uncertainties are considered, H-B parameters are random Read more... about Influence of Hoek-Brown linearization and input cross-correlation in slope Probability of Failure Calculation

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
