pillars of coal must be left to protect the wells. Ideally, the strata overlying the coalbed should cave behind the roof supports soon after the coal is extracted. If the strata hang up and break into large blocks, the high stresses placed on the roof supports may lock them in place and interfere with their operation. When large sections of

Roof stress - Unbalanced internal forces in the roof or sides, created when coal is extracted. Roof support – Posts, jacks, roof bolts and beams used to support the rock overlying a coal seam in an underground mine. A good roof support plan is part of mine safety and coal extraction.

Health effects of coal - SourceWatch

Coal Mining. Health effects from coal mining include: the release of methane (CH 4), a potent greenhouse gas estimated to account for 18% of the overall global warming effect triggered by human activities (CO 2 is estimated to contribute 50%).; the release of carbon monoxide (CO) from explosives, which pollutes the air and poses a health risk for mine workers.

The stress field formed beneath stream valleys is called "valley-unloading" stress. This type of stress field is common in Appalachian coal fields, where there is high topographic relief and deeply incised valleys. The process of stream erosion to create a valley tends to concentrate horizontal stresses beneath the valley axis.

coal | National Geographic Society

Coal is a non-renewable fossil fuel that is combusted and used to generate electricity. Mining techniques and combustion are both dangerous to miners and hazardous to the environment; however, coal accounts for about half of the electricity generation in the United States.

Discontinuities and obstacles: Fractures do not cause discontinuities.Fractures are natural in coal and are called cleats. If the coal is offset along a linear crack or break, the feature is a fault.. Potential roof-fall hazards: Fractures and joints are vertical weaknesses in mine roofs.As a vertical disruption in bedding, they can interfere with horizontal "beam" strength accomplished by ...

Room and pillar mining - Wikipedia

Room and pillar mining was one of the earliest methods used, although with significantly more man-power. The room and pillar system is used in mining coal, gypsum, iron, and uranium ores, particularly when found as manto or blanket deposits, stone and aggregates, talc, soda ash and potash.

In the fact, during the coal seam group mining, stresses arise in the adjacent coal seams, forming pressure increase and relief zones, as is shown in figure 2. This implies that the fractured zone formed during the early coal seam mining will be also affected by the later exploitation of the coal seam.

Factors – Coal – Mining Science and Technology

Information relative to the cleat size and spacing in coal are useful in predicting permeability,and generally the larger the cleat size and cleat density, the higher the permeability. Secondary cleats also occur in coal as a result of induced stress and changes to coal geological structure or mining.

Fig. 2 schematically shows the stress-bearing state of the coal mass at the sidewalls after roadway excavation. It is clear that near the roadway sidewalls, crushing zone, stress concentration zone and original stress zone are present in turn. As the stress concentration zone is the main mining-stress-bearing area after excavation, a large quantities of cracks are produced here.
