Abstract:

The behavior of twelve linear test foundations above an advancing longwall coal mine panel was observed. Three phases of deformation were observed in the centerline foundations: tension, compression, and a second tension. A slight amount of reinforcing was beneficial in reducing damage to the footing. Composite behavior between the footing and masonry wall is beneficial to the behavior.
