The paper analyzes formulations of mathematical problems on anti-plane strains in materials under post-critical deformation. Depending on a decline modulus, the system of equilibrium equations and strain compatibility conditions has one or two characteristics. Given the two characteristics, finding stress-strain state of a medium needs Cauchy stress vector and displacement vector to be set at one and the same boundary. The author shows that the post-critical deformation, if included in the problem on an equilibrium semi-infinite crack, results in the infinite growth of stresses at the crack tip under unalterable deformation. Based on this, it is necessary to account for the by now disintegrated and fractured material area that is more rigid and higher modulus under the further deformation as compared with the initial state material.

The paper discusses modeling of a multi-layer coal seam under hydrodynamic action based on the coupled equations of poroelasticity and filtration with the nonlinear relationship of permeability and porous pressure. The calculations by the finite element method use correspondence between the poroelasticity and thermoelasticity equations. The influence of input data on the size of a degassing hole area is analyzed for the couple problem and pure filtration problem.

The paper discusses mathematical modeling of localized shearing in a convergent channel, where displacement discontinuities occur along slip lines, and it is assumed that material behaves plastically at them and elastically outside them. Based on the finite element method, algorithms and numerical solutions for boundary value problems involving arbitrary number of slip lines are developed, as well as fields of stresses and displacements are built.

Studies of mechanical behavior of porous elastic-plastic media under shock loading were undertaken within the framework of irreversible thermal dynamics and Debye forms of Helmholtz free energy. The influence of porosity on dilatancy of porous elastic-plastic media is evaluated by the effective deformation method. The state equations derived in the studies match properly irreversible thermodynamics.

The author employs the Kjartansson absorption model to prove that intrinsic dispersion of seismic wave velocities in absorbing media is a basic factor responsible for the differences between elastic rock parameters measured dynamically and statically. Dispersion of Young’s modulus predicted by this model for a frequency range from millihertz to tens of kilohertz matches well the experimental data obtained for polyvinyl chloride plastic used as a test material in the study case.

Compression testing of granite samples has been carried out to study their structure and its influence on microcracking by comparing the measured grains and microcracks on the thin sections of granite before and after the testing. The authors suggest that the results may be transferred onto lager scale levels with the purpose of forecasting a macroscopic fracture.

Reasoning from an analysis of the potentiality for air hammers to achieve higher energy indices in impact driving of steel elements in soil, the authors show that utilization of boost air pressure sources in impact machines with an elastic valve in air distribution system holds much promise in this case. The paper also presents test data for an experimental air hammer with adjustable parameters.

In bord and pillar method of mining, the panels are sealed off after depillaring. Depending upon the site specific condition, 40 to 45 % coal are left in depillared panel as stook, loose coal left in goaf, hard coal on floor and roof of the panel. The left out coals in goaf area start oxidation, and this leads to spontaneous heating in side sealed off area. For assessment of fire in underground coal mines, thermo-compositional monitoring plays an important role. This paper presents scientific relevance and selective criteria for use of inert gas for control of subsurface fire. Finally the paper discusses spontaneous heating problem in sealed off area and application of inertisation technology by using CO2 to prevent and control sealed off fire at Haripur Colliery, Kenda Area, ECL, India.

Mechanism of dixantogen action in froth flotation is discussed. It is shown that this reagent eliminates kinetic constraints during formation of a flotation complex, rather than improves hydrophobicity of a mineral surface.

The paper analyzes a process of deep mineralization of various metamorphic grade coals pre-ground in different destructive units, namely, in centrifugal-planetary mill and disintegrator. Coal dispergation in higher energy intensive mills greatly enhances inorganic component extraction to acidic solutions. This is explained by distortion of crystal structure and amorphization of minerals under various kinds and different intensity mechanical actions.
