Deep Excavation: Theory and Practice by Chang-Yu Ou

By Chang-Yu Ou

Accelerating monetary improvement and urbanization has ended in engineers turning into more and more formidable, engaging in excavations in additional tough soils, in order that excavations are deeper and extra large. those advanced stipulations require complex research, layout equipment and development applied sciences. so much books on common starting place engineering introduce simple research and layout of excavation, yet don't often care for research and layout in perform. This ebook covers either components, introducing tools at the moment utilized in sleek engineering, that can with no trouble be utilized to research and layout in real excavations. in accordance with interplay among learn effects, research and instructing event, the booklet is appropriate for either academics and engineers in complex research and layout. every one bankruptcy ends with a chain of difficulties and options, making it both important as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate degrees.

A Room For The Summer: Adventure, Misadventure, And Seduction In The Mines Of The Coeur D'Alene

In A Room for the summer season, Fritz Wolff takes the reader on a memorable trip into the rough-and-tumble global of hardrock mining, recounting his stories either above and lower than flooring as an apprentice engineer through the overdue Nineteen Fifties. In June 1956, on the age of eighteen, Wolff went to paintings for the Bunker Hill corporation in Kellogg, Idaho, within the Coeur d’Alene area.

Best Practices for Dust Control in Coal Mining

Compiled through the U. S. Dept of future health and Human prone, CDC/NIOSH place of work of Mine protection and healthiness study, this 2010 instruction manual was once constructed to spot to be had engineering controls which can aid the decrease employee publicity to respirable coal and silica airborne dirt and dust. The controls mentioned during this instruction manual variety from long-utilized controls that experience built into criteria to more moderen controls which are nonetheless being optimized.

18 mm) remains a recognized challenge although some efforts have been made to improve the flotation process. Previous studies have shown that coarse particle flotation performance can be enhanced by picobubbles generated by hydrodynamic cavitation. In this work, a picobubble enhanced flotation column has been developed for enhancing recovery of coarse phosphate particles. Picobubble size was measured by a laser particle size analyzer. The collector dosage was reduced by one half to two thirds as a result of the selective adsorption of picobubbles on hydrophobic phosphate particle, which act as a secondary collector.

The coarse (+1180 mm) portion is primarily phosphate pebble and does not require further upgrading. The fine (–106 mm) portion that contains virtually all of the clay minerals is discarded in the hydrocyclone overflow (Patrick and Albarelli, 1995). , –425 mm +106 mm) fractions, which are upgraded using conventional flotation machines. This widely used flotation process can produce acceptable concentrates with P2O5 recoveries at the low-90 percents from the fine flotation feed, but gives poor resovery on the coarse fraction.

Deutsch and Castano (1986) showed that hydrodynamic drag force Fd can be significantly reduced by picobubbles, which decreases the detachment force. The excess force increases with decreasing bubble size Db. Thus smaller bubbles can be used to reduce coarse particle detachment and increase the upper flotation limit. 18 mm particle size fraction. The coarse phosphate flotation rate constant k (the slope of the plot) in the presence of picobubbles is substantially higher than in the absence of picobubbles, which indicates that the presence of picobubbles increased the phosphate flotation rate constant k and thus may increase capacity of a given flotation column.
