The best of ground control technology, 40 years in the making.

Developments in Ground Control summarizes the objectives, methodology used, and major conclusions reached from papers presented and published in the International Conference on Ground Control in Mining (ICGCM) proceedings from 1981 to 2020. Because the subject areas of the papers published in the proceedings are so broad, this volume groups papers into 13 chapters on topics ranging from accident training and coal/rock bursts to geology, pillar, mult-iseam mining, in situ stresses, roof falls, and roof supports to surface subsidence.

Each chapter takes a fresh look at the topics, providing new insights, sourcing older papers, and summarizing data. With more than 1,795 papers written in the 40 years of ICGCM proceedings in more than 40 ground control topical areas, Developments in Ground Control is organized to easily identify the progress, application, and achievements of certain techniques from the past 40 years and how they affected the field of ground control and the world mining industry, in particular, the United States. This is an indispensable reference volume for researchers and professionals to refer to again and again as they build upon the knowledge and applications of the past 40 years.
