The International Conference for rock reinforcement "Ground Support 2016" - 8th International Symposium on Ground Support in Mining and Underground Construction "held at the House of Culture in Lulea.
"Most of the presentations about ground support in tunnelling focus on weak rock conditions. The presentations about ground support in mines, focuses on deep mining conditions, i.e., large deformations and seismic conditions. Specifically the development, testing and simulation of ground support elements/systems for mining at great depth are covered by the presentations, says Erling Nordlund, Professor of Mining and Rock Engineering at Luleå University of Technology.
Organizer of Ground Support 2016 - the 8th International Symposium on Ground Support in Mining and Underground Construction - is the research group in Mining and Geotechnical Engineering at Luleå University of Technology.
