Controlled Roof Collapse during Secondary Mining in Coal Mines

The problem considered is an investigation of the possible collapse of the roof between the pillar next to be mined in secondary coal mining and the first line of pillar remnants called snooks. The roof rock between the pillar, which is the working face, and the snook is modelled as an Euler-Bernoulli beam acted on at each end by a horizontal force and by its weight per unit length.

Prediction of Roof Collapse for Rectangular Underground

In coal mining operations, most forms of roof collapse are undesirable (eg collapse of the roof above a roadway), although some are expected (eg the collapse of the overburden above a longwall panel). For both cases, mine designers need to be able to predict if and how the failure will occur. The collapse of the overburden strata above an

Research on Non-Pillar Coal Mining for Thick and Hard

This article introduces a new non-pillar coal mining technology (i.e., Gob-side Entry Retaining by Roof Cutting (GERRC)) under the condition of thick and hard roofs. First, we theoretically analyzed the solution to the large suspension span of the thick and hard roof in coal mining. Three-Zone pre-split blasting design in non-pillar coal mining for thick and hard roofs was proposed, based on

Innovation and future of mining rock mechanics ScienceDirect

Feb 01, 2021 The immediate roof consists of unstable rock strata located directly above the coal seam. The surrounding rock stress within the gob roof is redistributed during coal mining. However, the immediate roof does not collapse in a short period of time, with no obvious deformation of the rock strata above it (Fig. 3b). (2) Stage II: immediate roof

What is Longwall Mining? (with pictures)

Jan 30, 2021 As the miner advances along a panel, the roof behind the miner's path is allowed to collapse. Longwall miners extract rectangular blocks of coal that are as long as 12,000 feet. Longwall mining was first introduced in the 1950s and 1960s.

Controlling Rafter Deflection: Knee Walls, Purlins and

The implications of having deflecting (sagging) rafters may be simply cosmetic or may lead to a roof collapse. In some cases, the roof moves to a given position and is stabilized, perhaps by intermediate supports. Although the roof continues to show deflection, it may be quite stable. Inspectors should look for a “dishing” in the roof surface.

Coal Mining in the UK During the Industrial Revolution

Dec 27, 2018 The state of the mines which boomed throughout the United Kingdom during the industrial revolution is a passionately argued area. It is very hard to generalize about the living and working conditions experienced in mines, as there was great regional variation and some owners acted paternalistically while others were cruel.

The world's worst coal mining disasters

The collapse of around 3km² of underground mine area caused the disaster. The underground collapse was caused by the disintegration of around 900 underground pillars supporting the tunnel roofs. Around 1,000 miners were at work underground at the time of collapse. Half of them could survive by escaping via an incline shaft.

The collapse of the mine roof was due to the combined effects of high lateral compressive stress and high extraction ratio causing excessive bending of the roof beyond its limit. It was assumed that more » the higher lateral compressive stress under such a shallow cover was probably due to the drastic change in the structural geology of the

Accurately predicting the roof collapse span is crucial in ensuring the safe production of thick seam mining with large mining height, which is easy in forming a “cantilever beam” structure. Considering roof damage caused by roadway excavation and coal seam mining disturbance, the fracture mechanics model of large mining height roof cantilever beam with nonpenetrating cracks was established.
