NTIS: PB/235-320 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :146 pages
This report (Contract No. H0110688) describes the development of a prototype mobile shield to protect mine personnel from roof falls in the area within 25 feet of the working face. A discussion of the support requirements and mine environment parameters that dictate the physical dimensions and performance specifications of the shield is presented. Results obtained from limited testing of the prototype are presented, with emphasis on those features that worked satisfactorily and on suggested modifications for those portions of the model that performed below expectations. The report is of use to other investigators engaged in studying the present state-of-the- art of mobile shields.
