12/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration process on the concentrations and size distributions of aerosols in an underground mine.
Toward developing a new occupational exposure metric approach for characterization of diesel aerosols12/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesIn this study, the current exposure metric and two additional metrics, the surface area and the total number concentration, were evaluated by conducting simultaneous measurements of diesel ultrafine aerosols in a laboratory setting.
9/17/2012 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to design and construct an in-mine mobile gas generation plant to extract nitrogen gas from mine air and inject it into sealed mine areas to maintain a safe environment.
9/17/2012 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to integrate a micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) component into specialized electronics to measure methane levels in underground coal mines.
9/1/2011 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper presents technical and application aspects of a new software suite, MCP (Methane Control and Prediction), developed for addressing some of the methane and methane control issues in longwall coal mines.
Coal Mine Methane: A Review of Capture and Utilization Practices with Benefits to Mining Safety and to Greenhouse Gas Reduction5/1/2011 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article reviews the technical aspects of coal mine methane (CMM) capture in and from coal mines, the factors affecting CMM accumulations in underground coal mines, methods for capturing methane using boreholes, and borehole designs.
