A short course covering the most recent research on floor stability in the Illinois Basin coal mines will be organized in conjunction with the 46th US Rock Mechanics Symposium in Chicago, IL on Sunday, June 24th, 2012.
The contents of the course are designed mainly for engineers at mines, regulators and consultants. Some topics will also go into sufficient depth to interest academics.
This course is the first one being organized to dispense the most recent research completed at the end of 2009. Further details on the course can be found at: http://www.armasymposium.org/chicago_2012/short_course.html.
