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.
Probabilistic Modeling Using Bivariate Normal Distributions for Identification of Flow and Displacement Intervals in Longwall Overburden1/1/2011 - Peer reviewed journal articlesGob gas ventholes capture methane emissions. This study used bivariate normal distributions to determine the conditional probabilities of depth-displacement, depth-flow percentage, depth-formation, and depth-gas content of the overburden formations.
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.
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.
7/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn air quality survey was conducted at a precious metals refinery in order to evaluate worker exposures to airborne metals and to provide detailed characterization of the aerosols.
6/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesResearchers at NIOSH are developing methods for characterizing ultrafine aerosols in workplaces. One method includes the detailed analysis of collected particles using electron microscopy (EM).
3/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis work presents a fractal porous medium model to predict gob porosity and permeability for controlling methane flow and to predict air leakage into the gob.
Reconciling Longwall Gob Gas Reservoirs and Venthole Production Performances Using Multiple Rate Drawdown Well Test Analysis12/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesIn this paper, the production rate-pressure behaviors of six gob gas ventholes drilled over three adjacent panels were analyzed by using conventional multi-rate drawdown analysis techniques.
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.
6/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper presents data on the limiting (minimum) oxygen concentration in the presence of added N2, methane, propane, ethylene, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen and some of their binary mixtures, and addresses flammable concentration limits.
