Mine Subsidence Control. Proceedings: Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminar, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, September 19, 1985.
This publication contains four papers presented at a seminar on mine subsidence control held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on September 19, 1985. The seminar was designed to keep the mineral industry informed of new technology developed by the Bureau of Mines that permits reliable and accurate prediction of mine subsidence. The papers describe actual field studies undertaken by the Bureau to monitor surface subsidence over longwall panels. Topics discussed include the effects of subsidence on water table levels, the development of subsidence precalculation methodology suitable for use with the specific lithological conditions of the Pittsburgh coalbed, an engineering comparison of technologies used in surveying for longwall mine subsidence, and a comparison of the process of subsidence over two different longwall panels.
