Rockburst Support Reference Book
MIRARCO at Laurentian University is releasing the manuscript of a Rockburst Support Reference Book consisting of three volumes:
Please refer to links below for interim status of deformation-based support design:
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. This 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 introduced 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.

The volume II will be available in 2021.
