Stalowa obudowa odrzwiowa jest podstawową obudową wyrobisk korytarzowych stosowaną w polskich kopalniach węgla kamiennego. Wynika to z wielu zalet takiej obudowy, między innymi z łatwego dostosowania jej do warunków geologiczno-górniczych, szybkiego jej wykonywania, stosunkowo niskiej ceny, a także z szerokiego wachlarza dostępnych wariantów wymiarowych obudowy. Pomimo tego stalowa obudowa odrzwiowa posiada istotną wadę. Jej nośność jest zmienna w czasie wraz z postępującą korozją odrzwi.

The steel frame support is the basic gallery working support utilised in Polish hard coal mines. The reasons for this are the many advantages of this type of support, including its easy adjustment to geological and mining conditions, its fast manufacturing, relatively low cost and the wide array of available support size variants. Despite this, the steel frame support has one significant flaw. Its load capacity changes over time together with the progressing corrosion of its frame.

The suitability of roof and rock bolts and accessories for specific applications in underground mines depends upon the particular ground and rock conditions at the site of intended use. For this reason, it may be necessary to perform appropriate tests at the actual site of intended use to evaluate the effectiveness of the roof support devices.

Użyteczność kotwi do zabezpieczania stropu i ociosów oraz elementów wyposażenia dla różnych zastosowań w podziemiach kopalń zależy od warunków skalnych i spągowych w danym miejscu przeznaczenia. Z tego powodu w miejscu przeznaczenia może być wymagane przeprowadzenie odpowiednich badań, aby oszacować efektywność urządzeń zabezpieczania stropu.

Professional practices Maciej Bogucki endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Living at the heart of Polish industry makes it impossible not to be exposed to matters of coal and mining even during childhood. Applying this "natural" interest into my professional work has always seemed obvious, and my fruitful cooperation with official R&D mining institutions has proven it to be the right thing to do.

Nevertheless, I also have a keen eye for textual inconsistencies and a knack for the written word, which make me both a scrupulous editor and an occasional writer.
