Dynamic testing of ground support systems – Phase 1
Total Grant Value
Engineering in Highly Stressed and Complex Rock Masses
2002 - 2004
This project was conceived to design, build and commission a test facility based on a new loading concept involving momentum transfer.
The new facility and instrumentation were used to test rock reinforcement systems, and further work was anticipated (M0349A).
More than 20 specimens, involved in more than 80 tests, were evaluated in this initial project, and computer software for analysis of the large amount of data was also developed.
