New experimental chamber pathway to ground-breaking discoveries
New experimental chamber pathway to ground-breaking discoveries
It's not easy to predict how rock will fracture when exposed to a blast hundreds of metres below the earth's surface, but a piece of experimental equipment will take away the guess work for The University of Queensland's blasting and fragmentation technology team. The unique chamber will allow the team, led by UQ's Associate Professor Italo Onederra and Dr Christopher Leonardi, to validate advanced modelling tools that will help them to develop safer mining techniques that are also better for the environment.
