Hydrogeomechanical monitoring of the state of slope structures

V.V. Cheskidov

The analysis of the national and foreign practices of the development of large mineral deposits shows that monitoring is an inseparable constituent of modern mining. Moreover, in the future the importance of routine monitoring will be on the rise due to the growing complication of geological conditions and lack of accurate models of the rock mass behavior. Hydrogeomechanical monitoring of slope structures makes possible the implementation of engineering-geological and geomechanical modeling of slope structures and operational evaluation of their state with due regard to the variation of natural and industry-related factors to meet the requirements of industrial and environmental safety.
