3/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe CART-based model that is given in this paper can be used to predict methane emission rates and to adjust operation parameters under ventilation constrains in longwall mining.
A comprehensive guide to establish a program to curtail diesel particulate matter emissions, control pollutants after release in an underground mine environment and reduce exposures using administrative controls.
2/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe results of this study provide more insight into potential advantages and disadvantages of using biodiesel fuels for controlling emissions of aerosols and gases. Using diesel oxidation catalysts to control biodiesel emissions was re-examined.
Effects of Diesel Exhaust Aftertreatment Devices on Concentrations and Size Distribution of Aerosols in Underground Mine Air9/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper summarizes the results of a study conducted to evaluate the effects that several types of DPFs, DFEs, and a DOC have on the concentration and size distribution of diesel aerosols in an underground mine.
Forecasting Gob Gas Venthole Production Performances Using Intelligent Computing Methods for Optimum Methane Control in Longwall Coal Mines9/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesIn this paper, the total gas flow rates and methane percentages from 10 GGVs were analyzed. The results showed that the two-hidden layer model predicted total production and the methane content of the GGVs with more than 90% accuracy.
Effectiveness of Selected Diesel Particulate Matter Control Technologies for Underground Mining Applications: Isolated Zone Study, 20048/1/2006 - Reports of InvestigationsThis study evaluated the effectiveness of the state-of-the-art technologies for controlling DPM and gaseous emissions from underground diesel-powered mining equipment using the isolated zone approach.
Effectiveness of Selected Diesel Particulate Matter Control Technologies for Underground Mining Applications: Isolated Zone Study, 20035/1/2006 - Reports of InvestigationsAn underground metal mine study assessed the effects of diesel emissions control technologies (such as DPF systems, diesel oxidation catalytic converter, and biodiesel blends) on concentrations of diesel particulate matter and gases in mine air.
12/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA commercial version of the BOM impactor, called the DPM Cassette, was recently introduced by SKC®. Tests were conducted to evaluate the performance of the DPM Cassette for measuring diesel-source elemental carbon in the presence of coal dust.
1/17/2020 - Research areasMethane is an odorless, tasteless, colorless, lighter-than-air gas formed by the decomposition of organic and other carbonaceous materials. From 5% to 15% can form an explosive mixture which, if ignited, can have catastrophic consequences.
3/6/2018 - Research projectsA project to advance the assessment and monitoring of exposure respirable aerosols by developing timely, accurate, and site-specific monitoring technologies and strategies to apply to problems associated with exposure to these mining aerosols.
