Software for designing pillars for longwall mines
Software for designing pillars for room-and-pillar retreat mining.
A software program that helps to identify the location and likely severity of multiple seam interactions
7/1/2010 - Conference papersThe paper provides a basic set of input data and a modeling approach that can be used for numerical modeling investigations of various coal mine designs using the FLAC3D software package.
6/1/2008 - Conference papersThe paper provides: (a) a description of the gas pressure-based design approach to blasting, (b) a simple technique for estimating the damage radius of the buffer row of holes, and (c) a discussion of smoothwall design for the contour row of holes.
Technology News 526 - Proceedings of the International Workshop on Rock Mass Classification in Underground Mining7/1/2007 - Technology NewsThe International Workshop on Rock Mass Classification in Underground Mining provided a forum for leading practitioners of rock mass classification from around the world to come together and share their methods and experiences with the technique.
8/1/2001 - Conference papersThis paper discusses misconceptions about how roof supports perform and factors that impact their performance. The paper is limited to a discussion of secondary roof support systems and powered roof supports such as longwall shields.
8/1/2001 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe CMRR quantifies defects in the rock mass and compiles a strength value used for engineering design. The CMRR has been applied to a number of ground stability problems. The CMRR procedure and some of these applications are described in this paper.
2/1/2001 - Conference papersThree alternative approaches to reduce the risk of catastrophic collapse are described: containment, prevention, and full-extraction. Without good data available on post-failure pillar behavior, containment and full-extraction are the safest.
8/1/2000 - Conference papersRock drilling parameters including thrust, rotational speed, torque and velocity were examined to determine the ability to identify the strength of the rocks being drilled from the measured parameters.
