Abstract:

ENHANCED EGRESS REQUIREMENTS NECESSITATES A RATE OF ADVANCE OF 80 FT/HR FOR BOTH A BORING MACHINE AND GROUND SUPPORT LINING SYSTEM. THIS ADVANCE RATE IS BEYOND THE CURRENT TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF ALL STATE-OF-THE-ART LINING SYSTEMS. AN INNOVATIVE PRESSURIZED LINING SYSTEM USING A POLYMERIC MATERIAL IS PRESENTED WHICH WILL MEET BOTH THE STRUCTURAL, AS WELL AS, OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE EGRESS OPERATION. THE RAPID LINING SYSTEM POSSESSES A MECHANICAL SIMPLICITY AND OPERATIONAL PROCESS WHICH ALLOWS FOR CONTINUOUS, REMOTE CONTROL OF THE HARDWARE. THE LINING SYSTEM, AS CONCEIVED, WILL BE ADAPTABLE TO ANY EGRESS BORING MACHINE AND WOULD NOT INTERFER WITH ANY MUCK HANDLING SCHEME. PHASE I WILL EXAMINE KEY TECHNICAL ISSUES INCLUDING LINING MATERIAL EVALUATION, DISTRIBUTION UNDER PRESSURE, DEVELOPMENT OF A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF MAJOR HARDWARE SYSTEMS.
