Stress-strain relationship of waste body under different side pressures, water contents and particle fractions are investigated in this paper. The bearing features of waste filled body of entry retaining besides gob-side entry retaining are: (1) filling waste gob-side entry retaining requires adequate horizontal restraint; (2) gangue water content has little effect on filling body intensity and waste in natural water content state can be used to fill in gob-side entry retaining; (3) stress and -strain relationship of waste body (grain size ranges from 0 to 10mm) is nonlinear. The bearing capacity can meet the requirement of beside gob-side entry retaining support. Based on above experimental results, the industrial roadway retained experiment is successful. The research results provide theory design basis for wide application.
