Abstract
Flexible tendons, or cable bolts, have been recognized as an effective and efficient support system for underground mines. In the past 10 years, use of cable bolts has increased substantially. Two of the most significant safety hazards associated with cable bolts are the dissipation of stored energy in cable coils and the failure of cable anchors. The U.S. Bureau of Mines has documented these hazards, as well as other possible hazards associated with handling and installing cable bolts, and has evaluated potential solution.
