Displacement and Stress Analysis

in Coal Mines


LaModel

  • Uses a Laminated Overburden Model

    • More Realistic Stresses and Displacements

  • Used to Model:

    • Multiple Seams

    • Variable Topography

    • Complex Mining Geometries

    • etc.



Case Study

  • Upper Mine:

    • Room-and-Pillar

    • Overburden – 500 to 1300 ft (855 ft)

    • Seam Thickness – 5.0 ft

    • 7 Entry Rooms, Retreated

  • Lower Mine:

    • Room-and-Pillar

    • Interburden 45 ft

    • Seam Thickness - 5.0 ft

    • 7 Entries – 60 by 70 ft Pillars







Basic Features

  • Displacement and Stress Calculations

  • Multiple Seams

  • Multiple Mining Steps

  • 26 Different Seam Materials

  • 6 Non-Linear Seam Models

LaModelEnhancements

  • Graphical Post-Processing (1996)

  • Graphical Grid Generation (1999)

  • Coal Wizard (2000)

  • Grid Size Increases

  • Pillar Safety Factors (2006)

  • Lam2D (2003)

  • Stability Mapping (2006)




Grid size
Grid Size

Keith;

I need bigger grids, and more seams

  • Grid Size

    • 250 x 250 (1996)

    • 400 x 400 (2000)

    • 1000 x 1000 (2004)

    • 2000 X 2000 (2010)






Lam2d
Lam2D

Keith:

2D is the way to go.

LaModel Calibration

  • Developed a procedure that calibrated:

    • The Rock Mass Stiffness against the extent of the abutment zone

    • The Gob Stiffness against the expected gob loading (21° abutment angle)

    • The Coal Strength with empirically determined pillar strength (900 psi).




Calibration Results

  • Calibrated Safety Factor:

    • Keep the Safety Factor > 1.4 and

    • < 10% chance of failure


Future Developments

  • Calibrate to “shallow cover”

  • Re-examine Abutment Extent

  • Local Mine Stiffness Calculation

  • ARMPS-LAM

  • Improve the speed of the Multiple-Seam calculation


Armps lam
ARMPS-LAM

Keith:

You should build the laminated model into ARMPS

  • Incorporate a laminated overburden loading model into the ARMPS program


Future Developments

  • Calibrate to “shallow cover”

  • Re-examine Abutment Extent

  • Local Mine Stiffness Calculation

  • ARMPS-LAM

  • Improve the speed of the Multiple-Seam calculation
