In this paper the dynamic process of rock deformation and failure in the roadways of the #9 coal seam, Wuhushan Coal Mine by was simulated using the software "Rock Failure Process Analysis System (REPA)" [I]. Based on the simulation results, this paper analyzes the failure process, characteristics and weighting of the overburden as the longwall retreat mining proceeds. The roadway's behavior including deformation characteristics, failure mechanisms, stress distribution in the surrounding rocks and the effects of various support systems on roadway stability were analyzed and studied. While simulating the rock failure process with REPA, the model stresses can be obtained through two approaches: (1) the stress is reflected by the grayscale of pictures in the model failure process and (2) the model stress can be obtained by muti-element information, which is one of the commands in RFPA system. Data files of stress can automatically be created, and curves of stress and displacement of each element can be displayed in each step of computation. Keywords: Rock Failure Process Analysis System (RFPA); roof control; roof to floor convergence; combined support
