Project Overview

Project Number
Project Theme
Engineering in Highly Stressed Rock Masses


The following methods were developed:

  • the design and optimisation of slope monitoring networks to determine optimum locations of survey instruments and prisms, through computer simulations;
  • deformation mechanism of slopes, based on the observed deformation data from monitoring surveys, using least squares linear regression analysis technique;
  • integrating monitored deformation data in numerical modelling of slope deformations;
  • a comprehensive evaluation of the performance and suitability of a robotic survey system for pit slope monitoring which showed a survey accuracy approaching that of manual survey operations; and
  • an automatic slope monitoring system for automatic acquisition, transmission and management of deformation measurement data.

Keywords: slope stability, slope monitoring, pit wall deformation, on-line data logging
