Similar difficulty is elements of rock bolt model and mine massif model also the nonlinearity of support construction behavior, at carrying out a calculating experiment.

Therefore, using real geometry sizes always leads to the quality increase of receiv- of frame cross-section, though it increases the diffi- ing result.

And the Now let us pass to the consideration of influence whole picture of finite element net has clearly de- of qualitative modeling flexible tie of a frame sup- fined irregular character.

In most cases such approach achieved due to flexible tie modeling, which is fixed guarantees reasonable adequacy of given primitive in and made from material possessing low resistance and real object characteristics.

For emulating the behavior of increase zones of limiting rock state forming the loose environment the lagging is described by me- mine working arch. As such objects are entered in the nection of deformation and stress. Also Young construction for providing effort transmission and modulus is chosen to tend to 0.

These elements are steel concrete and mechanically, it is averaged characteristics, lagging, rock filling, wire mesh with wide cells, etc. From another averaged by mechanical characteristics object, the side, if to consider rock massif as a complex of rock.

In this case, change contact conditions on boundaries of these influence degree on stress field for different system layers. There are rigid contact, contact with darenko Using any type of contact can cause qualitative and quantita- tive changes of stress distribution, which presented on a Figure 3.

In case of rigid contact Figure 3a , at horizontal occurrence and not wide range of physical rock layer characteristics, the stress distribution is almost similar to the stress distribution in the model with- out foliation. And in the case of Figure 3b the stress distribution is significantly different from the previ- ous one. Such changes in qualitative and quantita- tive measures of stress distribution happened by en- tering mutual sliding of rock layers in the calculat- ing model.

Now, the stress level is higher in coal seam, than in surrounded rocks and its role of in- creasing drift stability extremely rises. Figure 2. Stress distribution in thin-layered massif near in- a b seam workings. Let us consider stress diagram presented on a Figure 2. The main reason, because of which the fo- liation influence is quite high in given calculating model, is the difference between rock layer strength. Rock layers forming foot and sides of a drift have the increased rigidness relative to rock layers, which forms upper and down areas of calculating model. It causes the stress concentration within geometric area of certain layer.

Taking into account of foliation the problem of reasonability of coal seam deep angle for adequacy of received results happens. To confirm all above mentioned the picture of stress distribution on a Figure 2 is analyzed. The Figure 3. Distributing stress intensity in a massif a with- major feature of this stress diagram is the absence of out taking into account of sliding on rock layer boundaries, b with taking into account of sliding on rock layer symmetry relative vertical axis of in-seam working, boundaries. Metal bars allow com- deformation in conditions of zones of plastic flow bining few bolts, being installed in the drift roof be- occurrence in elements of calculating model.

At that, the height in cross-section of bar model has to be increased relative to real meaning. It is necessary to ignore bearing plates of each contacting bolts in the whole support model. The contact between surfaces of bearing bar and rock massif has to be defined as free, without using friction force. It is linked with two moments. Firstly, during the calculation of individual bolt movements, relatively to each other, absolute quantities can have b different directions, that will cause to appear addi- tional stresses in the bar.

At that, if the bar rigidly connects with a massif, it will cause to wrong cor- rection of SSS on mine working contour. Secondly, when wire mesh takes place between the bar and rock massif surface, it will not limit movements of the bearing bar along the surface of rock massif. In the considered support construction the wire mesh plays the key role of integration factor provid- ing for effort distribution between installed bolts and frames in mine working roof. However, this c mesh limits free near-the-contour rock movement into a mine working. And the quantity of resistance on similar movement in cross section of the con- struction is slightly small.

It allows to consider given element of the construction as rigid mem- brane, set in place of its contact with bolts and frame supports. In results, the wire mesh is modeled as an object repeating the drift contour with width not exceeding the diameter of bar mesh, and me- chanical characteristics corresponding to flexible Figure 4.

Parameters of shear zone and methods of their conditions control at underground mining of steep-dipping iron ore deposits in Kryvyi Rig basin.

ABSTRACT: Representative analysis of collected data according to surveying measurements of the earth surface deformations within the mine baffles of Kryvyi Rig iron ore basin is carried out. The relationships between the lowering of the stoping level and change of dimension of basin subsidence and surface collapse across the strike are found.

Practical aspects of implementing the methods of diagnosis and monitoring of geoengineering state of rock mass in the lines of shear and collapse zones are considered. These deposits, as a rule, are small in In Kryvyi Rig iron-ore basin throughout decades a size in relation to the main ore bodies, were mined unique situation with preservation of daylight area by special projects. Therefore, such siderable areas damaged by mining operations were potential cavities may also be a potential hazard to founded.

In this case, the horizons, at mining of which the effect of stoping on prediction of caving zones was and still is more the day surface is considerably reduced. In this case, difficult task, because of taking into account physi- it sudden and uneven caves on the surface are practi- cal and mechanical properties of rocks with higher cally impossible.

At the same time, there is a gradual strength characteristics. In this regard, incomplete subsidence of a considerably large area due to the ceiling settling is possible at the room roof caving, increasing size of trough movement of overlying which in turn can lead to mini-rooms formation, rocks with a decrease in underground mining.

Concept and assumptions for developing underground brown coal gasification plant for supplying synthesized gas to heat and power plant. ABSTRACT: Concept of developing underground brown coal gasification plant for supplying synthesized gas to heat and power plant operating as a cogeneration unit is described in this paper.

Gradual interchamber pillar dimensions are given in terms of nature. Chambers caving was imitated then. As a result, load acting on are worked-out both to the right and to the left of it.

First, the width of 2 in- 10 chambers are worked-out within the right panel terchamber pillars was reduced up to 2 m pillars and 7 chambers are worked-out within the left one. There were no disturbances. It is Chamber scale is Then these pillars were completely re- panel and chamber span was increased up to 44 m moved and chamber span was reduced up to 32 m.

Modeling concerning adequacy of pillars and chamber span to the level of strength: a interchamber pillar was worked-out to the right of barrier one; b interchamber pillar was worked-out to the left of barrier one; c model after roof rock collapse. It was not enough to collapse the rest pillars and shifting rock mass to the surface Figure 2c.

In the first two cases stable chamber span was 32 There was not arch formation. Barrier pillar left the and 44 m. To check this result one more time model same. It confirmed an adequacy of its dimensions to No 3 was worked-out Figure 3a. Span of a single the level of strength in case of emergency.

It should be noted that under roof collapse within such single chamber, arch was formed but its contour is indistinct Figure 3b. Model 2.

Obviously, it should take load by barrier pillars with the help of modeling in case from entire rock mass within panel, i. It is required which interchambers pillars took earlier. According to design the diagram determining loads acting on to the study described above calculation diagram to barrier pillar. This diagram shows that load three or four interchamber pillars acting on calculation acting barrier pillar is neighboring pillars increases and they are destructed as well.

Moreover, rocks are cut along the boundary of barrier pillar. Arch is not formed. Figure 3. Model 3. Compressed stresses within barrier pillar will be 4b in his paper Kulikov It is supposed that V.

The necessity of using methods of bioindication to control the state of environmental objects and health of the population on post-industrial mining areas has been substantiated. Restructuring of the coal industry of Ukraine in of resources at which the operation of mining enter- is the most ambitious attempt to recover prises makes no economic sense; and reconstruct a huge economic sector of the state — the issue of liability of economic entities for the in a relatively short time.
