The influence of mine subsidence on engineered structures is a growing concern of the United States coal industry. This book contains a collection of case histories of the control and effects of mine induced subsidence on engineered structures. These papers review structural damage and reconstruction in areas of underground coal mining, subsidence effects and damage to highways and other transportation facilities, and subsidence causes and effects over abandoned mine lands. In addition, the analysis of subsidence stabilization techniques, control by grouting, and abatement projects are presented.
