Research on Overlying Strata Movement and Deformation under the Conditions of Shortwall and Longwall Mining
We simulate the rock’s movement and defoemation process in the coal mining, and research the overlying strata movement and deformation under the conditions of shortwall and longwall mining. The conclusion of the experiment indicates: with the method of double deck mining, the rock’s damage level in caving layer is more serious, the final subsidence curve presents a tooth geometry. The subsidence curve of fissure and flexure zone is simily with the longwall mining condition.
