  4. On the contrary, the two-entry layout has been widely applied to coal mines in China. The rib pillar (i.e., a long rectangular pillar the width of which is far less than its length without any crosscuttings that separate the pillar into a series of chain pillars) or the artificial rib pillar is normally

  9.  · BASIC PRINCIPLE OF BORD AND PILLAR METHOD When the gallery are developed a solid block of coal is left sourrounded the gallery are known as PILLAR. The coal pillars formed are extracted after the development of the mine leasehold and this later stage of extracting coal from pillars is known as depillaring.

  10. Random mine layout makes ventilation planning difficult, and if the pillars are too small, there is the risk of pillar failure. In coal mines, pillar failures are known as squeezes because the roof squeezes down, crushing the pillars. Once one pillar fails, the weight on the adjacent pillars increases, and the result is a chain reaction of ...

  11. The coal pillar and the mining width are designed using the room and pillar mining method, and the optimum panel size is determined by the longwall panel layout—"longwall panel layout with local shortwall mining." It can reduce the waste of coal resources and also protect the surface structures.

  12. However, since the mid 1990s, research into coal pillar mechanics in combination with new technology, education and a risk management approach to design and operation, have resulted in substantial improvements in the safety of pillar extraction.

  13. that non-pillar longwall panel layout cannot protect surface structures against damages at a relatively large mining height, even though complete backfill is conducted. In such cases, separated longwall panel layout should be applied, i.e., panel width should be subcritical and stable coal pillars should be left between the adjacent panels.

For example, Sun & Wang (2011 Sun XK, Wang W. (2011). Theoretical research on high water material replacement mining the strip coal pillar above confined aquifer.

  15. This paper summarizes the results of a research project whose goal was to provide the Australian coal industry with a chain pillar design methodology readily usable by colliery staff. The project was primarily funded by the Australian Coal Association Research Program and further supported by several Australian longwall operations.

  16. – coal seam thickness – ground control – surface protection requirements • Entry and cross-cut widths generally range from 15 to 25 feet • Pillar sizes will generally range from 30 to 100 feet and have a rectangular configuration • Extraction Ratio is the ratio of coal …

  17. The room and pillar system is used in mining coal, iron and copper ores mainly when found as manto or blanket sediments, stone and aggregates, talc, soda ash and potash. The key to the winning room and pillar mining is opting the optimum pillar size. If the pillars are so small the mine will fall down.

  18. The paper points out that bord-and-pillar mining is the most important method of coal extraction in South African underground coal mines, and advocates that pillar design procedures should be ...

  19. 3. An evaluation of coal pillar failed cases. The previous section of the paper has listed a number of coal pillar system design "rules" in reference to the stress-strain behaviour of coal according to varying w/h ratio. This section will examine those rules in reference to published cases of pillar system failures.

  20. Most coal mines in China are currently mining close coal seams. Roadways in close coal seams, especially ultra-close coal seams, confronted difficulties in maintaining, including large deformation of the roadway, roof caving, rib spalling and floor heaving. This is mainly caused by the complicated stress and geological conditions, shattered roof, improper layout and support.

  24. However, if the coal pillar width is too large as figure 3a shows, it will waste the resource and reduce the resource recovery. In general, the reasonable width of coal pillar is shown in figure 3b: exploit as much coal resource as possible under the safety condition of the pillars. Figure 3. Plastic zone with different coal pillar widths.

  25. Pillar - An area of coal left to support the overlying strata in a mine; sometimes left permanently to support surface structures. Pillar robbing - The systematic removal of the coal pillars between rooms or chambers to regulate the subsidence of the roof. Also termed "bridging back" the pillar, "drawing" the pillar, or "pulling" the pillar.

  26. The support effectiveness of mining gateway at closed-distance seam is determined by the layout of mining gateway and the stress effect of the upper coal pillar load on the bottom seam. The stress effect is affected by the coal pillar size and the properties of the coal pillar and surrounding rocks. These factors may cause the variation of the stress concentration, which could cause the ...

  27.  · When the width of the coal pillar increases to 10 m, as shown in figure 14(e), the stress in coal pillar increases to 26.69 MPa, while the maximum stress in panel rib decreases to 34.50 MPa. When the coal pillar width equals 12 m (figure 14(f)), there is an intact core zone about 2

  29. PILLAR STRENGTH The strength of coal pillars, i.e., the ultimate load per unit area, is dependent upon three elements: (1) the size or volume effect (strength reduction from a smalllabora­ tory specimen of coal to a full-size coal pillar), (2) the effect of pillar geometry (shape effect), and (3) the prop­ erties of the coal …
