The Symposium will concentrate on developing the rock engineering design process through the linkage of rock characterisation, modelling and design methods, including feedback from the construction process itself. The Symposium is being held in association with the 2011-2015 ISRM Commission on Rock Engineering Design.
2nd LatAm Health, Safety and Rescue In Mining
Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Globally there is increased pressure for mines to operate safely and move towards zero harm. Mining industry is consciously shifting their mind-set toward focusing on employee’s health, safety and emergency preparedness.
Mining leaders believe that that “Zero Harm” is not just about making safety a core value, It is about eliminating physical injuries and illnesses, taking control of health and safety, and consistently choosing more safe behaviors. Over the period best practices and theories have been applied to produce significant improvement to ensure safe workplace, however it seems that improvements have reached a plateau and that new insight is required for the next breakthrough.

Computational Modelling 2013
Aalmouth, Cornwall, UK
Dr Barry Wills +44 (0)7768 234 121
Jon Wills +44 (0)7900 676 701
Computational modelling is the use of fundamental physical equations to predict the behaviour of complex systems. Techniques include Discrete Element Modelling (DEM), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Methods (FEM). Due to rapid increases in computing power, it is now possible to carry out highly sophisticated and realistic simulations of scientific and engineering processes.
Computational modelling provides engineers with the ability to study systems in ways that are often not possible with experiments. This can be because of the difficulty in carrying out measurements within the systems, an inability to change the experimental input parameter independently or simply because of the cost involved in building an experimental system. In order to be able to use computational modelling in this way we need to have robust models that we trust and which can be solved efficiently.
