How it works

How a Stress Monitoring System works

REMOS system consists of three parts

1 Displacement monitoring instruments 

Displacement instruments capture the movement of rock. REMOS stress change monitoring system uses an array of measurement devices such as extensometers and instrumented rock bolts to collect strain data from the rock mass around excavations. REMOS system is designed to be highly flexible because it accepts data from instruments supplied by a range of manufacturers. The system is also scalable as its areal coverage depends on the mine’s needs and development stage.

2 REMOS cloud 

Displacement data is sent to REMOS cloud. Our cloud-based inversion algorithm combines the displacement data with a rock mass response simulated numerically and converts it into stress state changes and risk levels. The mine stress model uses the current mine geometry and mining plans and is updated periodically to take into account mining progress and new development.

3 Reports

REMOS reports shows the current rock mass stress state to the users in real-time and plots the stress changes over time. Plotting the stress state at a given location is possible by using filters. Threshold values for the stress hazard can be set, and the system will give warnings whenever they are exceeded. Periodic detailed reports describing changes in stress state are generated and automatically sent to the client.
