Purpose of Risk Based Design

  • Cater for the inherent variability in rock mass conditions
  • To address uncertainty
  • To apply engineering judgement
  • To enable decisions to made based on the level of risk to the operation
  • Risk =

In underground mining, there are a number of uncertainties in the ground support design process and during implementation of ground support designs. The minimisation of geological uncertainty is one of the rock engineering principles outlined by Bieniawski (1992) and by Stacey
