Developing the next generation of decision-support tools for mining with an emphasis on underground mine ventilation and life-of-mine schedule optimization. These two areas of research are key in maximizing the profitability of a mining operation.
MoFrac (Discrete Fracture Network Simulation Software) is a newly released software package that generates 3D fracture network models for rock mass characterization. Driven by the need for safer geotechnical design, MoFrac implements methods developed by R. Mohan Srivastava to create DFNs well-suited to both civil and mining applications.
