Investigation into the feasibility and application of composite materials in conveyor support structures for use in underground coal mines

Robert James Wootton
Composite materials are well-renown for their strength to weight ratios and are widely used in many industries where high strength and low weight is required. Although steel is the traditional material of choice in the mining industry, and particularly for conveyor support structures, the strength and weight advantages offered by composite materials has prompted this investigation into the feasibility of using composite materials in underground mining conveyor support structures. The first phase of the project...
