In the work, a hybrid cellular automata method was developed to study behavioral peculiarities of heterogeneous materials and contrast media. The method is a combination of two approaches: classical and movable cellular automata methods. The method was verified through comparing simulation data on sorption of carbon dioxide in lignite and corresponding experimental data provided by researchers from Velenje Lignite Mine (Slovenia). The obtained estimates of model parameters were used in numerical simulation of the gas phase on the strength and fracture of lignite samples. It is shown that the presence of the gaseous atmosphere even of pressure 0.1 MPa changes the effective strength of the lignite sample and the character of their fracture. The developed method can be used to study behavioral peculiarities of complex multicomponent media such as coal beds in mine zones.
