INVERSE PROBLEMS OF GEOMECHANICS AND ITS APPLICATION IN MINING AND GEOPHYSICS (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The communication devotes to the boundary, coefficient and mixed inverse problems in modeling solid mineral mining processes.
Direct and indirect methods for estimation of natural stress field components were compared.
Based on GPS data (South Siberia, 2000-2003) interpretation the possible indicator (sharp increase of horizontal strains increment in epicenter vicinity) of future strong seismic event was established.
The theoretical approach for evaluation of future earthquake focal parameters (hypocentre depth and fractal dimension of fault anomalous zone) was proposed. The approach is found on inverse problem solution by variation of daylight surface strains.
Using a viscoelastic model, a method is proposed to evaluating the equation-of-state parameters that describe deformation of structural units of the room-and-pillar implementation in bedded deposits composed of rocks developing rheological properties. The method is based on the inverse coefficient problem solution with the data on roof and floor convergence in stopes.
A method of day-to-day qualitative assessment of elastic and strength properties of backfill in flat bedded deposits has been developed on the basis of the solution of the coefficient inverse problem for a set of equations (quasi-static formulation) which describe deformation and failure of filling mass. Uniqueness of the solution only requires simultaneous minimization of two objective functions.
