Abstract
Abstract Variations of the mechanical properties and the pore structures of rocks after high-temperature treatment play a significant role in ensuring the operation of underground coal gasification and prevent the pollution of groundwater. In this study, to quantitatively analyse the pore structure and mechanical properties of sandstone after treatment at different temperatures (25 °C, 100 °C, 200 °C, 300 °C, 400 °C, 500 °C, 600 °C, 700 °C, 800 °C, and 900 °C), an experiment was conducted based on nuclear magnetic resonance. The variation laws of the size and number of pores in sandstone after the high-temperature treatment were determined to investigate the development of cracks and the changes in the mechanical properties of the rock. At low temperatures, micropores account for over 90%, and the connectivity between pores and cracks is poor. In the temperature range of 200–500 °C, macropores and microcracks were found to increase the most, followed by mesopores, while micropores exhibited the smallest increase. Above 600 °C, the porosity and permeability of the sandstone improved significantly. Furthermore, the porosity and permeability increased sharply by 1.62 and 1.27 times, respectively, at 500–600 °C compared with those at room temperature. After the high-temperature treatment, the stress-strain curves of sandstone gradually became smoother, the post-peak residual stress intensified, and the brittleness weakened. The inflection point of sandstone strength occurs at 800 °C, which lags behind the porosity, permeability, and peak strain, because the trans-granular cracks penetrate the whole granule and connect with the surrounding fracture network.

Abstract Rocks generate voltage and current when subjected to load. Hence, the study of their characteristics is critical to the prevention and management of mine dynamic disasters and their secondary impacts. To investigate the characteristics of surface potential and current induced by stress on coal mine sandstone roof, an experimental scheme for determining the mechanical–electrical characteristics of rocks is constructed. The aforementioned system tests the evolution rules of current and vo...

Abstract Gas explosion is one of the most deadly hazards in underground coal mining. Risk assessment has played an effective role in avoiding gas explosions and revising coal mine regulations. However, the traditional methods are deficient in quantitative evaluation, dynamic control and dealing with uncertainty. In this paper, a method of quantitative assessment the risk of gas explosion in underground coal mine using Bayesian network was proposed. A fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (FAHP) metho...

Abstract In this study, an anion-cation compound foaming agent (ACFA) was proposed based on the synergistic mechanism, so as to realize efficient production of low-concentration foam for preventing coal spontaneous combustion. The foaming and coal spontaneous combustion prevention properties of ACFA and anion compound foaming agent (AFA) were investigated by using Foamscan and the coal spontaneous combustion testing system, respectively. The results show that foaming speeds of the two agents bot...

Abstract Microwave-assisted pyrolysis (MWAP) provides distinctive heating for the conversion of coal into liquid fuels. This work investigated the effects of MWAP on the microstructure of bituminous coals by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) techniques. FTIR results showed that MWAP can lead to the decomposition of oxygen functional groups and aliphatic hydrocarbons. Removal of these hydrophilic groups...

Abstract Microwave has gained widespread popularity in coal drying. In the current electromagnetic models, coal is always assumed as a solid continuum. The thermodynamic evolution and the fluid migration in coal cannot be accurately predicted. In this study, a fully coupled electromagnetic, heat transfer and multiphase porous media model was developed to investigate the drying kinetics of coal under microwave irradiation. Results show that the temperature rise of coal during microwave irradiatio...

The knowledge of thermally modified strength properties is crucial in processes such as underground coal gasification, disposal of radioactive wastes in deep geological reservoirs and restoration of fire-damaged structures. However, due to the unavailability of dedicated laboratory equipment, scientists and engineers need to go across various laboratory facilities for testing their desired sample. Further, it delays the process and increases the cost of the project. Since there is a lack of empi...

High temperatures can cause deterioration of the physical–mechanical properties of rocks. In this study, the triaxial cyclic loading and unloading of rock specimens under different temperature conditions were investigated to reveal stress–strain curves, strength and deformation characteristics, failure forms, and peak stress dropping of the rock specimens at high temperatures. The deformation of treated rocks has an elastic after-effect, and the stress–strain curves formed a hysteresis loop. Und...

Abstract null null Due to the low coalification degree of lignite, the colloid-like properties and loose characteristics lead to low energy utilization efficiency and seriously hinder the correct understanding of the original pore structure and its mechanical behavior. As a standard process for physical property test, removing the moisture in the pores by drying will cause the lignite to shrink sharply, destroying its original pore structure. Also, for test methods that need to be performed unde...
