IMS is publishing the

Mine Seismology Reference Book

This book grew out of Mine Seismology: Glossary of Selected Terms, presented at the 8th Symposium on Rockbursts and Seismicity in Mines (RaSiM8) in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2013. It summarises the expertise gained over several decades of experience in the field, drawing together relevant concepts from diverse disciplines, including mathematics, classical and statistical physics, geology, rock and fracture mechanics.

Rockburst Support Reference Book

MIRARCO at Laurentian University is releasing a Rockburst Support Reference Book that comprises three volumes that will be released late in 2018. This book evolved from the Canadian Rockburst Support Handbook (Kaiser et al. 1996) and includes findings from subsequent research by the authors and others around the world.

The book specifically addresses support design aspects for strainbursts and for conditions where it is difficult, if not impossible, to establish a priori kinetic energy demand. A new design aspect – the concept of seismically triggered and dynamically loaded strainbursts – is introduced.

Deformation-based support design principles are established to assist in selecting robust support systems to mitigate rockburst damage. This book provides comprehensive guidance to create safe working conditions in burst-prone mines.
