Size effect of Water-flowing fracture Zone height based on FLAC3D
Longdong University, School of Energe Engineering, 745000 Qingyang , China
The loss of water resources caused by mining fissures is a key factor restricting the green development of coal resources in western mining areas. in order to analyze the influence of mining thickness and face width on the development height of water diversion fracture zone, based on the characteristics of overburden in Xinzhuang Coal Mine, the finite difference software FLAC3D is used to simulate and analyze the size effect of water diversion fracture zone height. The simulation results show that the height of the water diversion fracture zone is positively correlated with the increase of mining thickness and working face width. When the mining thickness is 9m and the width of the working face is 240m, the height of the water diversion fracture zone is 115m, and the average distance between the coal layer 8 of Xinzhuang Coal Mine and the bottom of the Cretaceous aquifer is 106.9m, which may cause water inrush in the mine. Therefore, according to the simulation results and referring to the mining size of part of the mine face in the attached Binchang mining area, it is suggested that the mining thickness of Xinzhuang Coal Mine is about 10m and the width of the working face is not more than 200m.
