Jan 01 2004 Analysis Of Practical Ground Control Issues In Highwall Mini Preventing Falls Of Ground In Coal Mines With Exceptionally Geo Mechanical Property And Failures Of Weak Roof Shales In Eclipse System Bolting In The Illinois Basin Variation In The.Unplanned roof failures in coal mines can be caused by a number of different factors These include geologic defects in the roof rock moisture degradation of shales extreme loading conditions under high cover multiple seam mining and inadequate support to name just a few.
Sep 01 2014 Shear failure is a common failure mechanism in underground coal mine roadways and is usually caused by high horizontal stress acting on relatively weak roof rock Fig 1 shows an example of roof shear failure in a Chinese coal mine roadway.

Ground failures in coal mines with weak roof The One of the most challenging safety problems in room and pillar coal mines is roof fall phenomena during retreat mining Roof fall not only.

Mines with exceptionally low strength roof (UCS 3 500 psi and CMRR 40) are much likely to struggle with roof falls than other mines Weak roof is a particular problem for many room and pillar mines in the Midwestern and Northern Appalachian coal basins Traditional roof support techniques are often not up to the challenge at these operations.
Sep 01 2013 Cutter roof failure is a commonly reported failure mechanism in coal mine roadways Hill (1986) defined it thus “cutter roof failure in mine roof rock is a failure process that initially begins as a fracture plane in the roof rock parallel to and located at the roof rib intersection The failure propagates upward into the roof over the mine opening at an angle usually steeper than 60 from.
Experience at coal mines with large numbers of falls indicates that many have weak roof Control of this roof may require additional ground control measures An understanding of the geologic and.
Figure 1 –Injuries caused by the fall of roof and rib in U S coal mines 1983 99 Figure 2 –Fatalities caused by the fall of roof and rib in U S coal mines 1983 99 safety and productivity These structures weaken the roof beam and can cause damage that is not prevented by conventional roof support In addition the occurrence of the.
The mines Observations and analyses of roof guttering in a coal mine by X Ndlovu and T R Stacey Synopsis Underground observations in a coal mine have indicated failure of the immediate roof above the bords Careful observations and photographic recording of occurrences of these roof failures termed ‘roof guttering’ have been made.
Mar 01 2020 1 Introduction The engineering design and stability of underground coal mines are longstanding issues especially the gateroads that allow safe extraction of longwall panels Failure mechanisms are dependent on the stress regime as well as geological and geotechnical conditions Roof and rib deformation typical of a longwall gateroad begins with the redistribution of in situ.
