1/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper describes tests conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the Barricade II Fire Blocking Gel.
1/1/2011 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThirteen coals of different rank were tested for ignition propensity in a 20-L explosion chamber simulating oxyfuel combustion gas conditions. The effects of coal type, coal concentration, O2 in CO2 atmospheres, and particle size were investigated.
1/1/2010 - Conference papersThis paper discusses several milestone events that show the progress of methane control research in underground coal mines.
1/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses some concepts and preliminary test results for a Passive Mine Blast Attenuator (PMBA) that can provide a useful alternative to increasingly larger and stronger stand-alone mine seals.
9/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study investigates how limestone rock dust prevents the propagation of coal dust explosions by assessing its changes in chemical composition.
9/1/2009 - Reports of InvestigationsThe information in this report was used by MSHA and WVOMHS&T as supporting data in their analyses and investigative reports of the Sago Mine explosion.
8/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNIOSH conducted a statistical study of available data regarding frictional ignitions in the United States from 1983 to 2005 to determine and define conditions controlling their occurrence.
5/1/2009 - Conference papersThis study shows a very good agreement between observations of partially burnt coal particles under a scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and floor dust samples, collected and analyzed using the alcohol coking test and SEM, to estimate flame travel.
2/1/2009 - Conference papersNIOSH has initiated a seals research program with collaborators from Safety in Mines Testing and Research Station (SIMTARS) in Australia, West Virginia University (WVU), the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
Use of Occupational Ethnography and Social Marketing Strategies to Develop a Safety Awareness Campaign for Coal Miners12/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article describes how occupational ethnographic techniques provided insights needed for "new product development."
