Deformation Mechanism of the Mountain and Research of Reinforcement in Yanchi Mountain


Article Preview

Mining activities would generate large scale goaf, and the existing of goaf makes the mountain body produce great distortion. Therefore, it has become a kind of serious geological hazard. Based on the concrete conditions of Yanchi Mountain, the simulation with ANSYS was conducted for analyzing the stability of goaf, mine pillar and roof, which would find out the high stress zone and plastic zone of the goaf. Therefore, the conclusion that inadequate of the pillar strength is the main cause of the mountain deformation is drawn, and a new strengthening method which is to strengthen the mine pillar and to increase new mine pillars is put forward on basis of the conclusion.The results show that the strengthening method has an obvious effect, and it reduces the workload and the cost, which also provides very significant evidence for the future studying.
