CE Webinar

Presented by:

Mine Subsidence - Cause, Effect and Mitigation


This presentation covers key aspects of mine subsidence engineering, a subject that is not well understood, and embraces a number of engineering disciplines. It focuses on the causes of mine subsidence and how mine stability relates to the resulting ground movements. Different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement. Prediction of subsidence and damage potential are also key aspects of subsidence engineering. Case histories will be presented which illustrate different ground movement and damage scenarios. This presentation will be presented in a manner that will be understandable to anyone that would be interested in learning more about mine subsidence.

Learning Objectives

  • Basic understanding of why subsidence occurs.
  • What are the main contributors for hazardous or safety issues due to subsidence.
  • What are the analyses and evaluations need to be done to assess the stability issues at these sites.
  • What are the design considerations that need to be made when a site is undermined and it is considered for new development.
  • What are the stabilization and mitigation alternatives for existing developed sites that have subsidence potential.
