W3: Shotcrete Design, Application and Ground Response Seminar

W3: Shotcrete Design, Application and Ground Response Seminar

Workshop Overview:

Securing the ground is one of the most important processes in underground mining. The main objective is to mitigate the risk of rockfalls and avoid potentially severe economic and safety consequences. Shotcrete is a well-established and popular method of securing the ground.

This seminar is aimed at site personnel involved in the design of the shotcrete mix, its implementation and quality assurance and the duty of the shotcrete/fibrecrete in mining engineering.


Workshop Presenter:

Professor Phil Dight, Professor of Geotechnical Engineering, Australian Centre for Geomechanics

Phil has been involved with the development and design of ground support for mining applications since 1975. Phil joined the ACG in 2008 and has since been working on stress memory effects in rocks, ground support applications, slope stability problems (including the use of microseismicity to understand failure mechanisms), and 3D rock properties. In 2017, Phil commenced a four year MRIWA project aimed at investigating the issues of strainburst vulnerability in underground mines.
