Geomechanics Consulting Services
Posted by February 28th, 2018
Geomechanics consulting services are an important component and source of expertise on your project.
Geomechanics Consulting Services – Geomechanics, including its sub-disciplines rock mechanics and soil mechanics, is a highly specialized field of expertise essential for the planning, construction and ongoing management of any modern underground or surface mine, or major civil engineering project.
Geotechnical engineers specializing in geomechanics use their knowledge and skills to optimize the design of the engineering project for increasing productivity and mitigating risk. However, not all companies have this capability and expertise in-house, and in some cases, it is not practical or cost-effective to have people with the required knowledge, attributes and capability employed in-house on a full-time basis. In other applications, there are existing personnel with knowledge of and training in geomechanics, but they can still benefit from the assistance and opinion of high-level geotechnical engineers.
In each of these scenarios, making use of external geomechanics consulting services as required makes sense.
External geomechanics consulting services is a source of extra information and expertise, provides a second opinion to in-house engineers, and, because it is not involved in the day-to-day operations, offers a renewed perspective. At MDEng, we provide geomechanics consulting services to diverse clients, principally in the mining (surface and underground) and civil engineering industries. Our team of highly qualified, skilled and experienced experts will add tremendous value to your organization in a variety of ways, from consulting to project management to providing training. Please contact us today for more information.
A comprehensive site characterization exercise is essential for all types of geotechnical projects in the mining and heavy civil engineering sectors.
Site Characterization - Rock masses, soil deposits and other geological features on and under the earth’s surface show high degrees(...)
Geomechanical data collection training will increase the accuracy of your data.
Geomechanical Data Collection Training - One of the tools mine and civil engineers use to keep their mines as safe and productive as possible is geomechanical data collection. Being able(...)
Geomechanical mapping can help with mine planning.
Geomechanical Mapping - In underground mines, surface mines, and other large excavations, it is vitally important to be able to predict, as accurately as possible, the behaviour of rock, soil and other natural materials(...)
Numerical modelling makes your excavation work safer.
Numerical Modelling - Numerical modelling has been used in various disciplines over the years, and rapid technological advances over the last few decades have made this practice more commonplace, efficient and useful.
Specifically, the development(...)
MDEng personnel are experienced in industry-standard geotechnical core logging techniques.
Geotechnical Core Logging - Data collected during drill programs from early stages of a project often forms the basis for project design. Geotechnical core logging is usually a very detail-oriented, slow,(...)
We have experience and understanding extending beyond the basis of good geotechnical mapping.
Geotechnical Mapping - Geotechnical mapping, while sometimes included as part of preliminary site investigations where rock exposure permits, is more commonly undertaken once a project is in production(...)
