Cablebolting in Underground Mines by Hutchinson/Diederichs

By Hutchinson/Diederichs

Cablebolts are versatile tendons composed of multi-wire strand that are regularly put in and grouted in drillholes at typical spacings to supply reinforcement and aid of excavations. This complete guide covers nearly all elements of cablebolting, for help of underground excavations in rock, from thought to implementation with an emphasis on (but now not constrained to) program within the mining undefined.

Bataan: A Survivor's Story

Like many different younger American males in the course of the depression-era Thirties, Gene Boyt entered Franklin D. Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. Later, after receiving an ROTC fee within the military Engineers and a bachelor's measure in mechanical engineering from the Missouri tuition of Mines, Boyt joined the Allied forces within the Pacific Theater.

Shotcrete The use of shotcrete for cablebolt grouting would have advantages in mines already using shotcrete and would reduce equipment requirements where the two support systems are used together. Hassani and Rajaie (1990) have pull-tested shotcrete grouted cablebolts in the laboratory and have obtained favourable results showing slightly reduced initial bond stiffness followed by comparable load capacity and enhanced residual strength at large displacements. Portland Cement Portland cement grout without aggregate remains the primary grout material.

And of the expected disturbing influences (stress change and gravity loading). Potential failure modes can then be identified and where necessary, support can be designed to maintain stability. 2: Demand considerations + Dilation control; rockmasses normally contain joints and fractures. These surfaces are primarily frictional (shear strength dependent on normal pressure) and dilational (open during shear due to roughness). If these surfaces can be held together by stiff reinforcement, the interlocking roughness and frictional strength of the rockmass are maintained.

In addition the ability of the cablebolt to withstand direct shear (guillotining) is less predictable than the tensile strength. It can be assumed that a 5 - 20 % reduction in capacity is possible in the field due to partial shear loading, although this is heavily dependent on the loading angle (tension + shear). 4 refer to the performance of the steel strand only. The bond mechanics again govern the actual observed stiffness and displacement capacity of a grouted cablebolt in the field. This stiffness is relevant only when known debonded sections are present.
