Dynamic testing of ground support systems – Phase 2
Total Grant Value
Engineering in Highly Stressed and Complex Rock Masses
2005 - 2008
Project M0349A was initiated to undertake modifications to the testing facility designed and built in M0349, to make test preparations safer and more efficient, as well as to enhance instrumentation and data analysis software.
Further achievements were a better simulation of a borehole in rock, and more than 80 additional tests on reinforcement systems.
Further research was undertaken in M0417.
