Pete Radcliff, manager of the e-Dev team at the University of Derby is working in conjunction with Derby University Virtual Quarry. Copyright 2010, Linden Research, Inc. All Rights Reserved. the Institute of Quarrying to replicate real quarrying situations: dangerous overhangs; explosions; hazardous working vehicles. Students move around the quarry identifying those hazards. The second edition of the quarry will include spontaneous rock falls, working drilling machines and a replica of a sequenced face explosion.

I’m really glad to see this kind of big engineering application in SL and I’m looking forward to going into the Quarry when i

ts finished. It makes good sense to run this type of simulation in SL.
