I have read Bart Kosko's book 'Fuzzy thinking' and I was quite impressed with
it. Right from the first page, I could think of possible uses in my choosen
field of study, Mining Engineering. I am in third year and wish to pursue
fuzzy logic with more vigar. I am currently writing code in visual basic 5.0
to control the temperature of a simulated shower system.
Now my question, Would any one have some good learning code examples
(c,c++,VB,fortran,mathematica,maple) to share with me. Also would anyone be
able to give examples of where and how fuzzy logic could be implemented
in a mining type environment, better yet if you work in the mining industry
and have actual examples that would be great. These are some of the uses that
i have come up with in mining which could also be applied to civil engineering
as well.
ground control - determination of rock constants based on ground
conditions, estimation of insitu and induced stresses,
production - determination of the grade vs. stripping ratio,
Operations Research
Blasting - determination of optimum drilling patterns, hole size, etc.

I think that fuzzy logic, from what i understand would benifit the mining
indsutry in a very postive and cost effective manner. For instances in ground
control and blasting, Most of the calculations are based on constants that are
determined not only from the geological data, but also from the engineers years
of experience.

Any comments or suggestions can be emailed to me by removing the NOSPAM
