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.

  • New hazard charts in General Analysis - Two new charts have been added to the General Analysis application related to assessing hazard with the frequency-magnitude relationship. The new charts plot various hazard parameters over time, or, by time of day:                 Charts / Time Series / Hazard over Time                 Charts / Diurnal / Diurnal Hazard The following parameters can be plotted […]
  • Background filters in the hazard app - The new background filters have been added to the Hazard Assessment application. The time of day filter can be used to see the effect of removing events during blasting/shift change on the hazard results. You can either view the results in raw or normalised form. The hazard calculations do normalisation for the event rate calcs […]
  • Stochastic Declustering Explained - As mentioned in the last blog post, a stochastic declustering algorithm has been implemented in mXrap to separate events into ‘clustered’ and ‘background’ components. It can be useful when designing seismic exclusions and re-entry procedures to separate seismicity that occurs in short bursts from seismicity that has low variability in space and time. Short-term exclusions […]
