Abstract
The NIOSH suite of coal mine ground control software addresses nearly every aspect of coal mine ground control planning, including geologic characterization, mine layout, pillar design, and support selection. Mine planners who use the software have access to the knowledge gained during years of NIOSH research--packaged in a simple, easy-to-use format. Several of these software packages have recently been updated and improved. These include Analysis of Roof Bolt Systems (ARBS), the Support Technology Optimization Program (STOP), the Coal Mine Roof Rating (CMRR), and the Analysis of Horizontal Stress in Mining (AHSM).
