Cunney-EG; Rudd-TJ; Kaufman-PW
NTIS: PB 295-555 :148 pages
Track in underground bituminous coal mines was investigated and technology was taken from other industries to obtain information on conditions that impair the safety and efficiency of the track and to develop guidelines and useful information on the construction, inspection, and maintenance of mine track. Volume 2 of this three- volume report contains recommended standards and practices for mine track and includes the relation of track conditions to safe speeds, descriptions, and limits for measurable track features such as gage, descriptions of conditions for track components that are normally not measurable, such as subbase soils; construction requirements and techniques; inspection requirements and methods; and methods for managing and performing track maintenance work.
