MINE SAFETY: Better mine safety begins with better mine design

(Editor’s note: We like good ideas, and sometimes they drop into our lap. The following was submitted by the Parker Group on behalf of its client Dassault Systèmes.)


FRANCE — In a step change beyond traditional processes, Abaqus finite element analysis (FEA) software from SIMULIA (the Dassault Systèmes’ brand for realistic simulation), is being used to enhance mine design and engineering simulation at a number of major mines around the world. In North and South America, Africa and Australia some of the world’s biggest mining companies are applying FEA technology to evaluate safety and improve design planning, implementation, and operations….more at Canadian Mining Journal
