Abstract:



Purpose.
To study regularities in changes in convergence of wall rocks along a setting line of the powered props depending upon the sandstone availability within the roof, mining depth, as well as its position relative to the coal seam along the length of the extraction column based on the results of numerical experiments and forecast probable zones of rigid settlement of the powered support units according to a longwall length at any moment of a stope arrangement along the extraction pillar in accordance with changes in geological and technological parameters.


Methodology.
The paper represents numerical experiments based upon 3D computer modelling of incremental stope advance within a layered transverse and isotopic rock mass while applying Solid Works Simulation 2019 software.


Findings.
The research results, concerning the nature of wall rock distribution value within a stope, are given. The results were obtained using incremental computer modelling of the longwall advance within a layered transverse and isotopic rock mass within the area of initial caving of the main roof.


Originality.
In the context of the Western Donbas mines, regularities of convergence value of wall rock distribution have been determined depending upon certain changes in such a system of geological and technological parameters as: availability of sandstone with 5 and 30 m thickness both within the immediate rock and at 30 m distance as well as nonavailability of sandstone within a roof; 215, 260 and 305 m changes in longwall length; 150, 300 and 450 m changes within a zone of initial caving of the main roof (1545 m) with 10 m increment of longwall distancing from an installation chamber at 1050 m distances.


Practical value.
The identified regularities of changes in convergence value make it possible to forecast probable zones of rigid settlement of the powered support units depending upon the longwall length at any moment of a stope location along the extraction pillar irrespective of mining depth. The abovementioned helps optimize the parameters of seam extraction for the conditions of the Western Donbas mines if required.
