The Impact Analysis of Ground Stability Caused by Exploiting Underground Coal
Disaster caused by exploiting underground coal is due to original mechanical equilibrium of underground rock has been destroyed when underground coal is exploited. And Stress redistribution and stress concentration of wall rock in the goaf happened too. As many complex factors exist such as complex structures of ground, multivariate stope boundary conditions, many stochastic mining factors and so on, it is difficult to evaluate the damage of the geological environment caused the excavation by surrounding underground coal accurately. Besides that, the coexistence of continuous and discontinuous of deformation and failure of wall rock make a strong impact on the ground, and the co-exist of tension, compression and shear failure also pay a great deal contribution to the destroy. Due to the mechanical property and deformation mechanism of goaf are complex , changeable, nonlinear and probabilistic, which changes with in space and time dynamically, it can not be studied analytically by the classical mathematical model and the theory of mechanics computation. Through finite element analysis software ABAQUS, a numerical simulation of the process of underground coal mining have been made. After make a research of the simulation process, it shows the change process of stress environment of wall rock and deformation and failure process of rock mass during the process of coal mining. The numerical simulation of the process can provide theoretical basis and technical support to the protection and reinforcement of laneway the process of coal excavation. Besides that, it also provides a scientific basis and has a great significance to reasonable Excavation and control of mind-out area.
