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.

  • 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 […]
  • Track Seismic Hazard over Time (per volume) - We have added some new features to the Hazard Assessment app to calculate the minode hazard for filter volumes. This works just like the current minode calculations, where you can select minodes and compute the probability, P of exceeding your design magnitude, within R of any selected minodes. The volume hazard refers to the seismic […]
  • Seismic Hazard – Sensitivity to b-value - Probabilistic seismic hazard calculations are dependent on the number of events (N) and the b-value. But which has more effect on the hazard result? The chart below shows how seismic hazard varies with b-value for N = 1,000, N = 10,000 and N = 100,000. The seismic hazard in the chart below can be considered in […]
