Prediction of the main caving span in longwall mining using fuzzy MCDM technique and statistical method

S. Mohammadi; M. Ataei; R. Khaloo Kakaie; A. Mirzaghorbanali

Volume 9, Issue 3 , July 2018, , Pages 717-726


  Immediate roof caving in longwall mining is a complex dynamic process, and it is the core of numerous issues and challenges in this method. Hence, a reliable prediction of the strata behavior and its caving potential is imperative in the planning stage of a longwall project. The span of the main caving ...  Read More

A three dimensional geometrical model for calculation of induced stresses surrounding longwall working

H. Mohammadi; H. Darbani

Volume 9, Issue 3 , July 2018, , Pages 727-740


  There are various criteria that need to be examined alongside each other when designing a longwall mining system. Challenges such as determination of the supported roof width, support system design, caving height determination, lateral or chain pillar size determination, and optimum support design for ...  Read More
