Optimal System Design for Instrumented Slope Monitoring in Open Pit Mines
MetadataShow full item record
The importance of slope monitoring, and its place in the design and operation of an open-pit mine are presented. Some of the commoner techniques for slope monitoring are reviewed and the limitations and advantages of these compared. Two short case studies are presented; the first illustrates the importance of fully understanding potential failure mechanisms within a slope before designing and installing a monitoring system; the second serves to illustrate a key difference between two types of monitoring system currently in use.
