7/1/2015An article presenting an assessment of the effects that ground control mesh might have on rock and float coal dust distribution in a coal mine.
6/25/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper examining the particle size distributions, specific surface areas (SSA), and the explosion suppression effectiveness of various rock dusts.
Further Study of the Intrinsic Safety of Internally Shorted Lithium and Lithium-ion Cells Within Methane-air11/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study that continues research into the potential for lithium and lithium-ion battery thermal runaway from an internal short circuit in equipment for use in underground coal mines.
5/28/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to transfer protective structure design technology from the defense establishment to the design and construction of seals in the coal industry.
Attenuation and duration of seismic signals generated from controlled methane and coal dust explosions in an underground mine12/1/2013 - Peer reviewed journal articlesSeismic monitoring provides a useful means for detection and evaluation of events resulting from mining activity.
11/1/2013 - Conference papersA NIOSH study investigating the potential for lithium-ion battery thermal runaway from an internal short circuit in equipment approved as permissible for use in underground coal mines.
10/1/2012 - News articlesThe NIOSH Coal Dust Explosibility Meter (CDEM) is available for purchase and use in underground coal mines. A recent Information Circular supports its use for real-time explosibility testing of rock and coal dust samples.
9/28/2012 - News articlesPreventing coal mine explosions requires a suite of control strategies and NIOSH continues to conduct research to develop more effective intervention measures.
