What is mXrap?

mXrap is a geotechnical data analysis and monitoring platform within which data analysis tools have been developed. mXrap (and its predecessor, MSRAP) was developed under the ACG’s Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management project. As part of this project the software served the purpose of a technology transfer tool to bring the project outcomes to the sponsor sites. The software design and -capabilities, however, created the opportunity to extend its use outside the field of mining induced seismicity from which it originated. Since February 2015, the development of mXrap is separated from the ACG’s research project and the further development is sponsored by the mXrap Consortium. The software mXrap provides the development environment (platform) within which Apps dedicated at specific tasks are developed. The ACG team has, under the Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management project, developed several tools for the monitoring, analysis and management of mining induced seismicity. Apps are now also developed for wider application and users may build and share their own Apps.

  • Seismic Source Parameters – Quick Guide - As mentioned in the last blog post, Energy and Moment are independently calculated based on the displacement and velocity spectra of the recorded waveforms. Another spectral parameter is the corner frequency. The figure on the left shows the corner frequency (f0) on theoretical displacement, velocity and acceleration spectra. The calculation of corner frequency relies on […]
  • Seismic Energy and Moment - You know that energy and moment are parameters to describe seismic events. But what exactly is their physical meaning for a seismic event source and how are they calculated? Moment and energy are both separate (but related) measures of the strength of a seismic event. A similar example is a car engine, the performance is […]
  • Download a root in mXsync - Did you know you can download root folders from mXsync? We have uploaded root folders for Tasmania and Big Bell mines. These sites have closed and the data has been made available for research. Have a look at the “Download a component” training video for a guide to downloading these roots onto your computer. The […]
