ALPS - Analysis of Longwall Pillar Stability

ALPS (Analysis of Longwall Pillar Stability) is software for designing pillars for longwall mines.The ALPS method, which is embodied in the program, consists of three basic steps:
Estimating the loading that will be applied to the pillars during all the phases of longwall mining
Estimating the load-bearing capacity of the longwall pillar system, and
Calculating "stability factors" (SF) by comparing the load to the load-bearing capacity
