Denver Technical Societies January Meeting
Dr. Gennaro G. Marino, P.E., D.GE will be presenting “Mine Subsidence Engineering: An Overview” at the January 2019 Meeting of the Denver Chapters of SEAC, CAGE, and ASCE on January 17, 2019 in Lakewood, CO.
This presentation covers key aspects of mine subsidence engineering, a subject that is not well understood, and embraces a number of engineering disciplines. It focuses on the cause of mine subsidence and how mine stability relates to the resulting ground movements. Different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement. Prediction of subsidence and damage potential are also key aspects of subsidence engineering. Examples of expected subsidence damage as well as mine stabilization will be shown.
This presentation will be presented in a manner that will be understandable to anyone that would be interested in learning more about mine subsidence.
