Mining technology adaptation criterion

Mining practice prefers the adaptive strategy as it enables full use of the available ability to perform correct acts. Effective solution of perpetual theoretical and engineering problems in mining requires renewal of planning and design philosophy of mining technology according to the adaptive strategy in real time. With this circumstance taken into account, the appropriate mining problems have been set and solved. The article also scrutinizes the functional aspect of the adaptation criterion towards extension to other problems in mining. In terms of the solved problem on the optimized adaptive arrangement of stoping blocks, the iterative algorithm of solution is presented. It includes the description of the problem situation yielding the adaptation criterion with the disclosure of its functional aspect. Aimed to improve understanding of the adaptive strategy, the likeliness and differences are presented for the two systems analyzed in the article: the technical system (TS) and the natural-and-technical system (NTS). One of the major trends of TS development is adaptation to the environmental challenges and their control. In this manner, the system tends to idealization. Our objective is to demonstrate the same trend in NTS. The presented adaptation concept is applicable to other mining problems, considering their specific nature as well as demands imposed by the technical system and miner on the problem under solution. It is important to distinguish the main criterion of functioning of the system this problem forms.

Keywords: adaptation, adaptive strategy, natural environment, factor of mineralization, prediction, optimization, geomechanics.
