Abstract
This report, Volume 2 of the 11-volume report on the master design simulator (MDS), describes the geology and reserves subsystem. The two functions of this subsystem are (1) the design of a geological data library to provide input to the other subsystems, and (2) the calculation of coal reserves and associated values and grades under various user-specified conditions. The subsystem uses a weighted moving average method to interpolate between the borehole values and provides output in report format, graphical plots, and/or storage on magnetic tape or other storage devices for later retrieval. The application of the subsystem as an independent model with test results and comparisons with other methods of computing reserves is also presented. The appendix includes a user's manual and a program listing.
