NZGS Webinar: Mine Subsidence: Cause, Effect, Mitigation

Date / Time
Apr 12, 2022 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Australian Geomechanics Society
Presenter: Gennaro G. Marino, Ph.D., P.E., D.GE., F.ASCE (Marino Engineering Associates, Inc. Saint Louis, MO) LINK TO FOLLOW Abstract: 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.   Short Biography: Dr. Gennaro G. Marino received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in 1985, from the University of Illinois. His thesis topic was related to mine subsidence and structural response to subsidence over room and pillar mines. Dr. Marino presently has a P.E. license in 28 states. He is the recipient of several awards, including the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Alumni Association of the University of Illinois, and the Central Illinois ASCE Civil Engineer of the Year. Working in the area of mine subsidence for over 40 years in various ore fields in the U.S., Dr. Marino has authored over 100 articles and publications on subsidence engineering topics and consulted on all aspects of subsidence engineering with government agencies, engineering and architectural firms and other stake holders.
