Physics of Coal and Mining Processes (Hardcover)
|Author: Anatoly D. Alexeev|
This book presents the physics of coal mining processes, theoretical and experimental research in coal, bearing rocks, and examines anthropogenic processes occurring during deep underground that lead to problems such as outbursts and explosions of methane. Bridging the gap between the academic and practical aspects of coal mining, the text provides novel methods of rock mass condition prediction, gas dynamic phenomena control, and safe mining load estimating. The author reviews the latest in modern instrumentation and physical methods of analysis, including X-ray coal structure analysis combined with computer simulation, and NMR spectroscopy combined with gas chromatography.
