Mechanism and Automation of Rock Breaking


  1. 1.

    Theoretical and experimental studies have indicated that the destruction of the film of adsorptionbound moisture drastically intensifies the coal oxidation process.

  2. 2.

    A mathematical model has been developed of the process of coal self-ignition which makes it possible to estimate the length of the incubation period and the fire-hazardous air movement speeds in a coal heap.
