Monitoring System of rock stability in mines based on Advanced 4D seismic analysis.

Project description

Advanced seismic analysis for mining activity

Ground collapse during mining operations can be catastrophic for both the safety of workers and the mining industry. It is necessary to monitor rock mass during underground activity to foresee eventual ground collapse. The 3D LET (Local Earthquake Tomography) method provides computational analysis of data collected by active seismographic systems once per month. However, this method is time consuming, costly and not entirely reliable because of the semimanual analysis made by experts. The EU-funded Mines-In-Time (MIT) project proposes an automatic system that monitors in real time the eventual alterations of the rock mass during mining activity. The system is based on an advanced 4D LET algorithm that can analyse natural and artificial microseismicity arising from mining or other operations.
