Fracture of the hanging wall of an excavation adjacent to a decline fault

  • J. J. Golecki


This paper presents the mathermatical modelling of a real rock mechanics problem concerning mining in the neighbourhood of the fault. The excavation starts at the fault surface and is carried out in the direction to the interior of the region.

Bruch der überhängenden Wand beim Abbau in der Nähe von schrägen Verwerfungen


Diese Arbeit stellt das mathematische Modell eines realen Problems der Felsmechanik vor, bei dem der Abbau in der Nähe von Verwerfungen erfolgt. Der Abbau beginnt an der Oberfläche der Verwerfung und wird in das Innere der Verwerfungszone weitergeführt.
