SUPPORT DETERMINATION METHODS
The Bureau of Mines acting as agent for the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), managed a program in Rock Mechanics and Rapid Excavation. The portion of the program assigned to the Spokane Mining Research Center (SMRC) concerned analytical and empirical techniques for ground support with emphasis upon: case history studies, instrumentation, evaluation and development, theoretical modeling of medium and structure interaction, and field studies. No work was done by SMRC in field studies. SMRC in-house and contract work performed under case history studies covered research areas of finding means of predicting rock loads, and developing the methodology for determining rock loads.
