Quantification of Optical and Physical Properties of Combustion-Generated Carbonaceous Aerosols (less than PM2.5) Using Analytical and Microscopic Techniques3/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing experiments conducted to quantify and characterize the optical and physical properties of combustion-generated aerosols during both flaming and smoldering combustion of three materials common to underground mines.
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.
4/2/2013 - Conferences, workshops, and seminarsWorkshop on diesel aerosols and gases in underground metal and nonmetal mines.
1/22/2013 - Conferences, workshops, and seminarsWorkshop on Practical Strategies and Technologies to Reduce Miners Exposure to Diesel Particulate Matter and Gases sponsored by the Nevada Mining Association, NIOSH, and the Mine Safety and Health Administration
Workshop on Practical Strategies and Technologies to Reduce Miners Exposure to Diesel Particulate Matter and Gases sponsored by the Nevada Mining Association, NIOSH, and the Mine Safety and Health Administration.
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.
