CFD Modeling of Methane Distribution at a Continuous Miner Face With Various Curtain Setback Distances7/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA report focused on validating a series of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models using full-scale ventilation gallery data that assessed how curtain setback distance impacted airflow patterns and methane distributions at an empty mining face.
6/1/2006 - Conference papersTests were conducted in a full-scale ventilation gallery with a model mining machine that simulated airflow created by a dust scrubber. The results showed that operation of machine-mounted scrubbers improved face ventilation when blowing ventilation is ...
6/1/2006 - Conference papersTests were conducted in a full-scale ventilation gallery to determine the influence of mining machine-mounted water sprays on airflows and methane concentrations at the face when blowing ventilation systems are used. Test results using different spray a...
6/1/2001 - Conference papersResearch to determine how machine-mounted water sprays and a scrubber interact to reduce methane levels and what spray configurations provide the best face ventilation when used with a scrubber.
