- for experts in open–pit bench and wall stability.
- for professionals responsible for monitoring rock mass movement and determining stability margins.
Stability Analysis Using Block Models
With the Stability Analysis module, you can perform various stability analysis operations, including stability assessments of dumps and open–pit benches/walls in the homogeneous and heterogeneous rock masses, using a geomechanical model.
Pit Wall Stability Analysis – Hard Rocks
Using the K-MINE Stability Analysis module, you can explore the stability of wall sections formed by hard rocks with varying physical and mechanical properties based on structural occurrence patterns.
Stability Analysis – Loose Rocks
Moreover, with K-MINE, you can calculate the stability of wall and bench sections formed by loose rocks with varying physical and mechanical properties, with a consistent pattern of structural occurrence.
The deliverables are stability factors and graphs showing sliding wedges.
Seam Block Model
For stratified deposits, you can use force polygon method for a heterogeneous environment and a block model for stability analysis.
Internal and External Dumps
With a three-dimensional graphic model of a dump, you can assess the stability of dump slopes at the design stage.
Additionally, the module can draw a line with a recommended slope angle based on the user-defined stability factor.
Calculation methods include:
- Algebraic addition of forces
- With foundation uplift
- Force polygon method for a homogeneous environment
- Force polygon method for a heterogeneous environment
Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of licenses does K-MINE provide and how much do they cost?
K-MINE offers two types of licenses: monthly or annual subscriptions and perpetual licenses. Please contact the K-MINE team to learn about the pricing for each module.
How can information be transferred from one module to another?
K-MINE is a standalone application with a single database, so no data transfer is necessary. Different teams can access data according to their user rights.
Is K-MINE cloud-based software?
No, K-MINE is a desktop application. However, upon request, our team can install it on a Windows server and set up a cloud infrastructure.
