NTIS: PB/84-178698 Available for Reference At Bureau of Mines Libraries :41 pages
This manual is to be used in combination with volumes I and II of the study on spoil stability in the eastern coal province. The manual applies the predictive matrices developed in the parent study for use in evaluating the stability of typical mine spoil slopes. The values of internal friction and pore pressure coefficient are derived for many varied slope conditions. The results can be used in conventional stability analysis equations to assist mine operators or regulatory personnel in evaluating spoil stability from very limited information.
