For this English model the textual content has been completely revised, enlarged, and sup plemented via over a hundred new figures. The booklet offers with the present country of foreign knowl aspect on strata and floor circulation over mine workings, with its destructive results on mine shafts and the land floor, and with measures for regulating mining harm in legislations and decreasing it in perform. dialogue starts with the mine excavation underground - the reason - and ends with the wear to floor constitution- the impact. tools of roof keep an eye on, together with the topic of rock bursts, will not be mentioned, seeing that that could be a box involved extra with the security of underground workings than with minimizing harm on the floor. Of the five hundred literature references within the German edi tion, in simple terms the extra very important for a global readership were retained, yet no worth judgement at the many pUblica tions now not pointed out may be learn into this. The e-book is mainly meant as a operating reduction for the mine surveyor, the mining engineer, the architect, and the civil engineer.
