Mining Contract: New Technologies for Identifying and Understanding Ground Stability Hazards

Contract DetailValue
Contract #200-2011-40313
Start Date8/16/2011
Research Concept

This contract will quantify the ground response in underground coal mines with different geologic settings and varying depth of cover. The project includes laboratory testing and numerical modeling, but primarily uses extensive field work using point-location instrumentation data transmitted out of the mine, laser scanning, and microseismic tomography.
