Abstract

This paper deals with spoil roam utilization by two different spoil placement techniques. A three-dimensional computer-aided design approach for generating conical and curvilinear spoil piles are developed. Curvilinear spoil piles make better use of spoil room. When dragline and panel dimensions are closely matched, geometrical stability is reached after a few sets along the direction of advance.
