Coal Leader ::: Longwall Mining

Longwall Mining Longwall mining has had the biggest impact on U.S. underground coal operations over the past 20 years. Although the concept originated in Europe, modern longwall mining in the U.S. began in 1960 and as equipment improved, became more widely used in the 70's.

Longwall mining - Wikipedia

Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice (typically 0.6–1.0 m (2 ft 0 in–3 ft 3 in) thick). The longwall panel (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 3–4 km (1.9–2.5 mi) long and 250–400 m (820–1,310 ft) wide.

CHAIN PILLAR DESIGN - Mining Science and Technology

The strata load from above the extracted longwall panel is transferred from the longwall panel to the adjacent chain pillar(s), this is shown in the diagram below. Once the second adjacent longwall panel has been extracted, the chain pillars are subjected to extremely high strata loads.

Longwall | Definition of Longwall by Oxford Dictionary on

'In 1976, Old Ben Coal Co., with Federal assistance, began a trial of modern mechanized longwall mining in a new area of their No.24 mine in the Herrin Coal seam.' 'The three main underground mining methods are stoping, room-and-pillar mining, and longwall mining.'

Longwall Systems - Underground Mining | Mining Corp

Longwall systems Joy complete longwall systems represent the ultimate solution for high-production longwall mining. Joy incorporates best-in-breed shearers, roof supports, face conveyors, stageloaders, crushers, and mobile belt tail pieces to deliver a complete longwall system that is in a class of its own.

Shield-Roof Interaction in Longwall Panels: Insights from

The shield-roof interaction as mining proceeds in longwall panels remains unclear, hindering the further increase of longwall productivity. To uncover the mechanisms of shield-roof interaction, using our self-developed Status of Shield and Roof IntelliSense (SSRI) system, we investigated the effects of idle time, retreating rate, setting pressure, yielding, and shearer’s cutting, as ...

2021/01/19 · However, longwall mining is generally applied in coal mining. The main difference between shortwall and longwall mining is that in shortwall mining, the widths of the panel blocks are less than 600 ft (182 m) while in longwall mining, the width ranges from 600 to 1200 ft (182 - 305 m) while the lengths range between 3,000 and 14,600 ft (911 - 4450 m).

Longwall machinery 1. Longwall machinery The equipment used in longwall mining includes Cutting Machines Armoured Face conveyors(AFC) Powered Face Supports Stage loaders CUTTING MACHINES: • Longwall shearers • Coal plough 2. Longwall shearers The coal is cut from the coal face by a machine called the shearer (power loader).

Inertial Navigation: Enabling Technology for Longwall

Longwall mining is usedextensively worldwide and accounts for over 80% and 50% of underground coal production in Australia and theUSA respectively. Modern longwall mining operations have been optimized to the point where manual operation of the processlimits the future development of this mining method.

Influence of longwall mining on the stability of gas wells

Longwall mining has a significant influence on gas wells located within longwall chain pillars. Subsurface subsidence and abutment pressure induced by longwall mining can cause excessive stresses and deformations in gas well casings.

Combining modern assessment methods to improve

potential of modern longwall faces. In addition, longwall panels have been trending both wider and longer to increase productivity.To support these larger capacity longwalls and to reduce the risk of occurrences that limit productivity, there needs to be an improvement in the understanding of longwall fracturing processes.
