Impressions of the third Module of the SDM Program „Field Work and Monitoring“ in Leoben


By using a VR head seat the participans were able to walk through a tunnel virtually and to experience the development of monitoring data over time.

The participants were able to apply their previously acquired theoretical knowledge at the “ Research@ZaB—Zentrum am Berg”, a unique underground facility for research, development, education and training purposes.

At the end of the week the participants visited the mine of Wolfram Bergbau und Hütten AG in Mittersill, which is one of the most important tungsten mines world-wide.













   Welcome to the Rock Engineering for Deep Mines Programme
