RS<sup>2</sup> Mining Applications





RS2 is widely used for stress and stability analysis of mining excavations. Applications include both underground and open pit mines. Multi-stage analysis and advanced support design tools simplify the design of support systems.

See each of the listings below for more details:




This example demonstrates the use of RS2 for modeling the exacavation of an open pit mine. The model is excavated in nine stages, and excavation continues underground after the bottom of the pit is reached. The model includes sub-vertical faults which intersect the pit.

This example is included iwth the installation of the RS2 program. The RS2 file for this model, Open Pit.fez can be found in the Examples folder in the RS2 installation folder.
This example demonstrates the use of RS2 for analyzing the stability of an open pit mine slope using the shear strength reduction method. A method of optimizing the overall slope angle in order to achieve a particular factor of safety is demonstrated.

This examples demonstrates the use of RS2 for modeling the excavation of a vertical shaft, using an axisymmetric analysis. The shaft is excavated in two stages. Liner support is installed on the perimeter of the shaft, and a vertical load is applied to the ground surface in the final stage.

This example is presented as a RocNews Developer's Tip. For details see:

This examples demonstrates the use of RS2 for modeling the excavation of a tabular orebody. The model is excavated in three stages and backfilled in the fourth stage. Cable bolt support is installed from the access drift to the hangingwall.
