Stress–Strain Investigation of the Rock Mass Based on Overcoring with CSIRO HI Cell Test and Numerical Modeling: A Case Study from an Italian Underground Marble Quarry

by Riccardo Salvini, Andrea Ermini, Vivien Di Lucia, Luisa Beltramone, Daniele Silvestri, Andrea Rindinella (Department of Environment, Earth and Physical Sciences and Center for GeoTechnologies of the University of Siena); Stefano Guido (SIAL.TEC Engineering S.R.L.); Daria Marchetti and Domenico Gullì (UOC Ingegneria Mineraria – USL Toscana Nord-Ovest).


The present research illustrates the application of a methodological approach to studying the stress–strain distribution in a marble quarry of the Apuan Alps mining area (Italy). This study has been carried out in the framework of a project involving the University of Siena and the UOC Ingegneria Mineraria—USL Toscana Nord-Ovest, Tuscany Region. This stress–strain analysis aims foremost to monitor the slope stability conditions to guarantee a safe workplace for the personnel involved in mining activities, and to enable more sustainable long-term planning for excavation and production.
