Rock Noise Source Location Techniques.
NTIS: PB 196 679 :18 pages
The Bureau of Mines has developed rock noise source location techniques that may be used to obtain precise and practical source locations from microseismic field data. These techniques enable one to monitor all or any part of a rock structure and map progressive stress buildup or rock movement. Thus, the microseismic method of determining instability in rock structures is becoming an invaluable engineering tool for the mining or civil engineer engaged in rock excavation and construction.
