Get this from a library. Economics of large-scale surface coal mining using simulation models. [Fluor Utah, inc.; United States. Energy Research and Development Administration.; Bonner & Moore Associates.]. Large-scale surface coal mining will play a key role in meeting future energy needs of the U.S.

Fluor Utah, Inc., with Bonner and Moore Associates, Inc. as subcontractor, was contracted by ERDA to determine and define the problems of large-scale surface coal mining that would be encountered in supplying these energy needs.

Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit (the overburden) are removed, in contrast to underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral is removed through shafts or tunnels.

Surface mining began in the midth century. Surface mining also known as strip mining, is the most common type of mining of coal in the world responsible for ∼8% of coal production in China, 80% in Australia, and 67% in the United States.

The bed of soil and rock, covering the coal bed (commonly referred as “overburden”) is first removed using draglines, power shovels, bulldozers Cited by: 2.

The underground mines have been using huge amount of timber as roof support, leading to large scale deforestation. Nearly 95% of the supports in underground are. RTRO-Coal is currently developed, validated, tested and implemented as part of a multi-national multi-partner European Union funded R&D project.

The key concept is to promote a shift in paradigm from intermittent discontinuous to a continuous process monitoring and quality management system in large scale coal mining operations.

The rationale for the transition is often to limit the adverse effects of energy consumption on the environment. This includes reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. An algorithm is proposed for solving linear programs with variables constrained to take only one of the values 0 or 1.

It starts by setting all the n variables equal to 0, and consists of a systematic procedure of successively assigning to certain variables the value 1, in such a way that after trying a (small) part of all the 2 n possible combinations, one obtains either an optimal solution Cited by: My research aims to document the extent to which the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems is being altered by land use change (urbanization, agriculture, mining) global change (rising CO 2, rising sea levels) and chemical pollution.
