Title

Recent Insight into Longwall Strata Movements Deduced from Subsidence Analysis

Abstract

Using an inverse application of the traditional influence function technique, surface displacements are used to analyze some of the movements of the intermediate roof strata in a longwall panel. The primary hypothesis developed proposes the existence of an area of partial roof caving near the edge of a panel called the edge effect. A secondary hypothesis promotes the importance of the effect of gate entry closure on strata movements. The hypotheses are extended to provide an explanation of the subsidence interaction of adjacent longwall panels in what is termed a redisturbed effect.
