The Analytical Approach to Evaluate the Load-Displacement ...

Fully grouted rock bolts are widely used in civil engineering and mining engineering, playing a significant role in keeping the stability and safety of excavations. In this paper, the load transfer mechanism of fully grouted rock bolts was studied with an analytical model. A trilinear model was used to depict the bond-slip behaviour of the bolt/grout interface.

IOM3 | History

The Institution of Mining and Metallurgy (IMM) was formed in 1892 by leading hard-rock mining professionals, as the industry throughout the British Empire and beyond was seen as too big to be served successfully by one professional body. Both these bodies were granted Royal Charters on the same day (9 February) in 1915.

Metallurgy

Metallurgy is defined as a process that is used for the extraction of metals in their pure form. The compounds of metals mixed with soil, limestone, sand, and rocks are known as minerals. Metals are commercially extracted from minerals at low cost and minimum effort. These minerals are known as ores. A substance which is added to the charge in ...
