PSIMine3D™ mine Modeling

PSI has Developed PSIMINE3D™ for Advanced Numerical Modeling to Predict the Performance of Mine Ground Control Systems and Rock Structures Under Diverse Field State Conditions.

PSIMINE3D™ is capable of modelling different stress states and climatic conditions, including drifts, shafts, pillars, berms, rooms, structural support, bulkheads, shotcrete, backfill, etc.

PSIMINE3D™ is a continuum mechanics model that employs non-linear viscoelasticity, plasticity and viscoplasticity, coupled with fracture mechanics. This model is designed to predict stresses, strains, displacements, creep rate and damage at any location in mine structures, leading to better geological and geotechnical structural design. PSIMINE3D™ numerical modelling is fully integrated with PSI laboratory and field testing services to provide the best engineering solution.
