TL;DR: The proposed GPR approach can predict ground vibration more accurately than the standard techniques presented in this study and has the highest correlation coefficient, variance accounted for, and the lowest values of the statistical error indicators applied.
Abstract: An attempt has been made to propose a novel prediction model based on the Gaussian process regression (GPR) approach. The proposed GPR was used to predict blast-induced ground vibration using 210 blasting events from an open pit mine in Ghana. Out of the 210 blasting data, 130 were used in the model development (training), whereas the remaining 80 were used to independently assess the performance of the GPR model. The formulated GPR model was compared with the other standard predictive techniques such as the generalised regression neural network, radial basis function neural network, back-propagation neural network, and four conventional ground vibration predictors (United State Bureau of Mines model, Langefors and Kihlstrom model, Ambraseys–Hendron model, and Indian Standard model). Comparatively, the statistical results revealed that the proposed GPR approach can predict ground vibration more accurately than the standard techniques presented in this study. The GPR had the highest correlation coefficient (R), variance accounted for, and the lowest values of the statistical error indicators (mean absolute error and root-mean-square error) applied. The superiority of GPR to the other methods is explained by the ability of the GPR to quantitatively model the noise patterns in the blasting data events adequately. The study will serve as a foundation for future research works in the mining industry where artificial intelligence technology is yet to be fully explored.

TL;DR: In this paper, a new predictive model based on Gaussian process regression (GPR) that does not require iterative tuning of user-defined model parameters has been proposed to determine reservoir porosity and permeability.
Abstract: In this paper, a new predictive model based on Gaussian process regression (GPR) that does not require iterative tuning of user-defined model parameters has been proposed to determine reservoir porosity and permeability. For this purpose, the capability of GPR was appraised statistically for predicting porosity and permeability of the southern basin of the South Yellow Sea using petrophysical well log data. Generally, the performance of GPR is deeply reliant on the type covariance function utilized. Therefore, to obtain the optimal GPR model, five different kernel functions were tested. The resulting optimal GPR model consisted of the exponential covariance function, which produced the highest correlation coefficient (R) of 0.85 and the least root mean square error (RMSE) of 0.037 and 6.47 for porosity and permeability, respectively. Comparison was further made with benchmark methods involving a back propagation neural network (BPNN), generalized regression neural network (GRNN), and radial basis function neural network (RBFNN). The statistical findings revealed that the proposed GPR is a powerful technique and can be used as a supplement to the widely used artificial neural network methods. In terms of computational speed, the GPR technique was computationally faster than the BPNN, GRNN, and RBFNN methods in estimating reservoir porosity and permeability.

TL;DR: A new class of advanced artificial neural network known as brain inspired emotional neural network (BI-ENN) is proposed to predict AOp, which is known to be one of the most important environmental hazards of mining.
Abstract: Blasting is the live wire of mining and its operations, with air overpressure (AOp) recognised as an end product of blasting. AOp is known to be one of the most important environmental hazards of mining. Further research in this area of mining is required to help improve on safety of the working environment. Review of previous studies has shown that many empirical and artificial intelligence (AI) methods have been proposed as a forecasting model. As an alternative to the previous methods, this study proposes a new class of advanced artificial neural network known as brain inspired emotional neural network (BI-ENN) to predict AOp. The proposed BI-ENN approach is compared with two classical AOp predictors (generalised predictor and McKenzie formula) and three established AI methods of backpropagation neural network (BPNN), group method of data handling (GMDH), and support vector machine (SVM). From the analysis of the results, BI-ENN is the best by achieving the least RMSE, MAPE, NRMSE and highest R, VAF and PI values of 1.0941, 0.8339%, 0.1243%, 0.8249, 68.0512% and 1.2367 respectively and thus can be used for monitoring and controlling AOp.

TL;DR: Assurance requirements were included in the disposal regulations to compensate in a qualitative manner for the inherent uncertainties in projecting the behavior of natural and engineered components of the WIPP for many thousands of years.
Abstract: Assurance requirements were included in the disposal regulations to compensate in a qualitative manner for the inherent uncertainties in projecting the behavior of natural and engineered components of the WIPP for many thousands of years (50 FR 38072). Section 194.42 is one of the six assurance requirements in the Compliance Criteria. Section 194.42 specifically addresses requirements for monitoring the disposal system during preand post-closure operations. This requirement distinguishes between preand post-closure monitoring because of the differences in monitoring techniques used to access the repository during operations (pre­ closure) and after the repository has been backfilled and sealed (post-closure). The purpose of monitoring is to confirm that the repository is behaving as predicted.
