In order to provide valid theory support for the development of underground coal gasification and coal-bed methane mining, this paper conducted Brazilian disk tests on coal measure sandstone at 800[degrees]C temperature at different heating rates (5, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50[degrees]C/min) and observed the subsequent slow cooling.
