NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR MEASURING THE IN SITU PERFORMANCE OF ROCK BOLTS (2012)
Understanding the interaction between rock bolts and underground rock movement is critical for safe and cost effective underground excavation design. Although early research on this subject involved a balance of theoretical analysis and field measurement, recent work has been heavily focused on analytical and numerical studies. This paper describes technology that has the potential to redress the balance through instrumentation of rock bolts deployed under routine operating conditions in underground mines.
