Evaluating the Inherent Safety of Li-ion Batteries in Portable Electronics Used in Underground Mine Environments11/22/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to experimentally evaluate the inherent safety of Li-ion batteries used in portable electronic devices for underground mine applications.
11/15/2016 - Research projectsA project seeking to eliminate disasters from gas explosions within sealed areas of coal mines through improved engineering of the complete sealing process and better education of the mining workforce.
A project to define the geologic and stress criteria associated with an elevated risk of coal bursts, considering both U.S. and international experience through visits to coalfields.
A project to reduce float dust deposition in return and belt airways of underground coal longwall mines through laboratory and field evaluation of novel dust prevention, capture, and suppression methods and dissemination of related findings.
A project to make recommendations and guide policy or program decisions regarding the safety of batteries used in underground coal mines.
A contract to simulate the development and evolution of natural gas (NG) explosions in mine tunnels.
A contract to develop new technologies for emergency de-energizing of batteries, and to demonstrate prototype systems designed for application in a battery system currently employed in mining operations.
Internal Short Circuit Detection for Improved Safety of Lithium-Ion Batteries for Mining ApplicationsA contract to improve the safety of lithium-ion battery systems in order to reduce the risk posed by these batteries to mine workers.
7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to establish guidelines for mine seal design under static and dynamic loading conditions from gas and/or dust explosions within sealed areas.
7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA capacity-building contract to examine the explosion and fire hazards in the gobs of underground longwall coal mines through physical and numerical modeling.
