Numerical investigation on the tunneling and mining induced geo-hazards: Case study in Quang Ninh, Vietnam
In the field of rock mechanics, underground construction and mining, there have been many proposed methods for studying geo-hazards and also many research results that have been published in the world. In Vietnam, the numerical method is mainly used for analysis and design but not going deeply to predict the possible causes that lead to geo-hazards due to complex geological conditions. On the other hand, underground constructions and exploitation projects are often designed based on standards, regulations and experiences. The physical mechanism as well as the possibility of geo-hazards occurred when constructing underground structures and mining can take on various forms, depending on geological conditions and construction technology. Therefore, using numerical methods to simulate and analyze the possible geo-hazards is essential. This article presents a number of specific analysis cases, taking into account geological conditions and boundary conditions, and from that, raising a number of issues to note when using numerical methods.
