Paper presented at the 52nd U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 17–20, 2018
Paper Number: ARMA-2018-956
... ABSTRACT: Roof failures in the longwall headgates mostly occur outby the T-junction area within the front abutment pressure zone. The roof in this area could fail in the form of cutters, sagging, or collapse. Although front abutment pressure, high horizontal stress, and adverse roof geology...

Paper presented at the 46th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 24–27, 2012
Paper Number: ARMA-2012-137
... conditions in a mine roof appear to limit the potential for sudden catastrophic buckling of roof beds in the situations modeled. “Cutter” type roof failure near the excavation corners was more likely to occur in the models when the lamination interfaces were weaker and less stiff. A ground response curve...

... as it is pushed away from the mid-Atlantic ridge. Elevated stresses are not necessarily present in all the limestone formations because local features such as outcropping and folding may have relieved the stresses over geological time [7]. The tectonic stresses can cause roof failure by progressive shearing...

... Indian Creek Beds in the Ste. Genevieve limestone. A room with similar dimensions and stratigraphy but closer to the cave entrance and slope face exhibits extensive roof failure resulting in a high breakdown dome. This suggests that the roof of the Flat Room may be near the limit of stability. We have...
