In response to the severe floor heave problem of the+1100m track crosscut in Liuyuanzi Coal Mine, it was found that the crosscut exists in a hard top and soft bottom surrounding rock environment. FLAC3D simulation was used to study the stress, plastic zone, and displacement of the surrounding rock when the crosscut is supported by bolt-mesh+Shotcrete+36U-type steel combined support and bolt-mesh+Shotcrete+36U-type circular shed combined support. The simulation results show that the latter reduces the floor heave by 57%.
