Stress concentration caused by tectonic stress and mining disturbance in coal mines induces a unique type of rock burst. No. 3201 working face controlled by an anticline structure in the Shandong mining area is used as the research background. The formation mechanism for anticlines is analyzed. Theoretical research shows that the bigger the tectonic couple is, the smaller the foundation stiffness, and the greater the bending degree and elastic strain energy of the coal will be. The distribution characteristics of abutment pressure and maximum principle stress in anticlinal control areas are analyzed using UDEC numerical software. The results show that rock bursts result from interactions between abutment pressure and residual tectonic stress. The “connection-overlay-separation” phenomenon of abutment pressure presents with working face advancement. Furthermore, the energy criterion for rock burst initiation is established based on the energy principle. Residual energy “E0EC” and rock burst danger characteristics during mining are discussed. Based on the simulation results, microseismic monitoring data for No. 3201 working face are analyzed, and the law of microseismic energy is consistent with the variation law for the residual energy “E0EC” at the peak of the simulated abutment pressure. The microseismic energy and frequency are higher during mining, increasing the risk of rock burst events. It can provide scientific basis for prevention and control of rock burst.
