Therefore, the rock-overlaid roof structure in different gobs are similar to a certain extent.
6 that if the spacing of close distance coal strata is less than the height of natural arch due to the excavation of lower coal stratum, the roofing of the gobs will penetrate each other when the two coal strata are excavated.
The inclined length of the working faces of the coal strata is relatively large, the arrangement of waste rocks under the natural arch in the gobs is loose and the horizontal force in the waste rocks is small.
It is evident from Figure 6 that the due to the spacing of complete stratum in close distance coal strata, the weight of the natural arch of upper coal stratum, waste rocks in the gobs and the complete rock stratum between the two coal strata is fully sustained by the natural arch of lower coal stratum, but the weight of waste rocks in the gobs of lower coal stratum acts independently on the coal stratum flooring.
2] is the weight of waste rocks in the gobs of upper coal stratum; Q is the weight of complete rock stratum between the two coal strata in the range of excavation of close distance coal strata; n is the number of working faces in the range of excavation of coal strata; q is the load of lower coal stratum flooring on the natural arch springing.
Incorporate Equations 7 and 8, the load of lower coal stratum flooring on the coal pillars in the gobs can be calculated as:
