Full-scale evaluation of the strength and deformation of grout column supports for mine subsidence abatement.
Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, RI 9501, 1994 Jan; :1-16
This evaluates the load supporting characteristics of grout columns used as point supports for mine subsidence abatement. The cone-shaped columns were constructed with sodium silicate and cementitious grout in both wet and dry environments. The scope of work included the testing of seven full-scale grout columns in the Bureau's Mine Roof Simulator (MRS) from which the load-deformation and failure characteristics were determined.
