6/1/2010 - Conference papersIn this NIOSH study, a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model developed in previous work is used to model the effect of seal leakage on spontaneous heating of coal in longwall gob behind the seal.
Modeling the Effect of Barometric Pressure Changes on Spontaneous Heating in Bleederless Longwall Panels3/1/2010 - Conference papersThe effect of inflow and outflow of gas on the potential spontaneous heating in the gob was investigated using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model.
12/1/2019 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing a field study conducted to understand the role of gas dynamics in variable broken rock, as well as investigate airflow exchanges between the face and gob.
Ground Response to High Horizontal Stresses During Longwall Retreat and its Implications for Longwall Headgate Support2/19/2019 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing roof support requirements in the longwall headgate under high horizontal stress in regard to the pattern of supplemental cable bolts and the critical locations where additional supplemental support is necessary.
2/5/2019 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn analysis of a numerical-model-based approach for estimating the changes in both the horizontal and vertical loading conditions induced by an approaching longwall face.
10/22/2016 - Research projectsA project to address the paucity of guidance in available literature for assessing the design an underground longwall coal mine for safe ground response to mining with numerical stress analysis tools.
Stochastic Modeling of Gob Gas Venthole Production Performances in Active and Completed Longwall Panels of Coal Mines11/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper describes a practical approach for implementing stochastic determination of gob gas ventholes production performances and for generalizing the prediction capability of deterministic models.
Development of Multiple Regression Functions for Performance Prediction of Gob Gas Ventholes for Sealed and Active Longwall Mines2/1/2010 - Conference papersA discussion of the NIOSH-developed software suite for methane control and prediction (MCP) based on an artificial neural network (ANN) is presented in this paper.
Elastic and Shear Moduli of Coal Measure Rocks Derived from Basic Well Logs Using Fractal Statistics and Radial Basis Functions12/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA new approach was tested and it was demonstrated that it could be used for prediction of elastic and shear moduli of coal-measure rocks with reasonable accuracy.
6/1/2009 - Information CircularsThis paper examines four different stress analysis programs or tools for analyzing stress around a single longwall panel at 610 m (2,000 ft) depth beneath overburden containing some strong strata.
