The purpose of this thesis is to aid in the development of vertical cutting mining as a mining method. In order to do so, the technical feasibility and viability, and environmental benefit of vertical cutting as a complementary mining method were investigated. The investigation was performed for the case of the Victor Diamond mine in northern...

Present design tools, as found in the Rock Manual or Coastal Engineering Manual, for the determination of toe rock size for rubble mound breakwaters are based on test data with a large spread: data is relatively dispersed around the centre and descriptive equations have limited applicability ranges. New research has been undertaken to contribute...

This thesis investigates the stability of rocks in toe bunds for rubble mound breakwaters. Presently recommended design tools lack a reasonable degree of accuracy to assess required toe element dimensions. The goal of this research is to improve the insight in the physical process related to stability of toe bund elements under wave load....

Van den Berk, M. (author)
Existing stability relationships for toe and slope structures of rubble mound breakwaters (e.g. by Gerding and Van der Meer) are empirical and do not give a clear insight in the actual physical processes near the structure. In this research an attempt is made to enlarge this insight and to derive new stability relationships in which this insight...

Ye, L. (author)
This report is a graduation thesis of a fourth-years student of the Delft University of Technology, Faculty of civil Engineering. The object of this thesis is to research the stability of stones on a mild slope under wave attack. A possible application is the protection of a pipeline crossing a beach exposed to hydrodynamic forces. For many...

Grote, W. (author)
Stability of rock on horizontal bottoms and steep slopes subjected to wave attack has been a subject of investigation in the past. But the stability of rock on gentle slopes has not been investigated systematically. The objective of this research is to investigate the relations between the different variables involved. A possible application is...

This paper reports on a laboratory investigation conducted at the United States Army Engineer Waterways experiment station, Vickburg, Mississippi, to determine criteria for the design and construction of rubble mound breakwaters. Small-scale breakwater sections are hand-constructed in a concrete wave flume 119 ft long, 5ft wide, 4 ft deep, and...

First pdf is translation, second pdf is original Russian text. - The possibility of constructing a dam by dumping stones into flowing water is considered. Experiments are carried out with different construction methods. In total five different methods have been tested. From the hydraulic standpoint, the most rational method of construction...
