Relay Bar Call Tom O’Donnell, PE to Discuss Your Engineering Challenges We were asked to perform the structural integrity and fatigue life of an original and modified longwall mining relay bar. Longwall mining is used to more efficiently remove underground coal deposits in large rectangular blocks. After a “pass” of coal has been mined, the …
