Rigid Analysis Overview

Failure mode considered:

  • Shear (vertical slippage at abutments)

Main Assumption

A simple "falling block" analysis, where the crown pillar or roof beam is treated as a rigid block. Elastic properties are not considered.


  • Low, medium, or high confining stresses
  • Any span / depth ratio is valid

For reference, see A Limit Equilibrium Analysis of Surface Crown Pillar Stability.
