    It is believed that underground longwall mining usually produces fractures in the surrounding rocks. On the one hand mining-induced fractures not only degrade the strength of the rock mass but also serve as main channels for fluids (e.g. water and methane). Fractures facilitate the failure of the rock mass and fluid inrush into working spaces.
