Mining Product: Guide for the Construction of Driven-Rod Ground Beds
Original creation date: January 1978
Authors: RL King, HW Hill, RR Bafana, WL Cooley
This report describes a method for designing and constructing ground beds that has been developed under the sponsorship of the Bureau of Mines. The procedures for designing and constructing a driven-rod ground bed with a resistance of 5 ohms or less are given. Some of the theory of soil resistivity and fall-of-potential resistance measurements is included. Results of a bed constructed at the Bureau of Mines mine car roadway are presented.
