This publication contains papers prepared for the Workshop on Coal Pillar Mechanics and Sesign, Santa Fe, New Mexico, June 7, 1992. The workshop was held in association with the 33rd U.S. Symposium on Rock Mechanics and was sponsored by the U.S. Bureau of Mines, the Mine Safety and Health Administration, Consol Inc., and Jim Walter Resources, Inc. The proceedings are divided into two broad topics: coal pillar mechanics and the design of coal pillars. The mechanics section focuses on recent insights into the behavior of coal pillars in situ as interpreted from field measurements, numerical models, and laboratory tests. Papers in the design section discuss practical aspects and field-proven techniques illustrated by the authors' own experiences. The authors of these papers are representatives of government, industry, and academia from the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, the Republic of South Africa, and India.
