Behavioral Aspects of Roof/rib Injuries--Implications for Training Utilizing Steroscopic Photography.
Proc Fifth Conf on Ground Control in Mining 1986 Jun; :213-220
This study is a report of experimental research on the use of stereoscopic (3-d) slides for presenting visual cues associated with hazardous roof and rib conditions. Compared with conventional slides, 3-d slides provide for significantly greater hazard recognition among both experienced and inexperienced miners. Details such as the presence of cracks and gaps in the surrounding rock are more accurately and realistically perceived. Reaction to the 3-d slides by the mine training community has been positive, and it has been noted that they also stimulate trainees' overall interest.
