International Mining Congress and Exhibition of Turkey
Apr 11 2017 to Apr 14 2017
Invited Speaker Personal Data:
Close Relationships Between Mining and Tunnelling, Engineering, a Typical Numerical Example for Belt Conveyor System Desing
Rock engineering problems related to mechanical excavation in complex geology, solutions and examples from Turkey President of Turkish Tunnelling Society
Close relationships between mining and tunnelling engineering will be discussed, including mechanical excavation, drilling and blasting, ventilation, support design, muck transport water drainage, worker's health and safety etc. The possibilities for mining engineers to work in tunnelling projects and the main topics which should be included in education programmes will be also discussed.
A typical numerical example will be given for belt conveyor desing taken into account the parameters used for muck transport in Mahmutbey-Mecidiyeköy Metro tunnels.
