2/6/2015 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to develop a “smart” self-contained open circuit breathing apparatus (SCBA) that protects against threat gasses and provides an extended duration of life-sustaining oxygen inhale stream by monitoring the surrounding atmosphere.
10/11/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to provide miners with real-time alerts to potentially harmful air contaminants if a dangerous threshold of either immediate or timed exposure is detected.
10/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study assessing heavy-duty haulage trucks' contribution to the concentrations of aerosols and criteria gases in underground mine air and the physical properties of those aerosols for three FAME biodiesel blends.
3/4/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to evaluate the role of gas desorbing on the failure of coal and the resultant influence on dynamic failures such as bumps, bursts, and outbursts.
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.
