6/1/2008 - Conference papersThis paper summarizes the modeling efforts conducted by NIOSH in the U.S. and CSIRO in Australia to address various gas management issues encountered in longwall mines using the application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and numerical reservoir m...
Effects of Sintered Metal Diesel Particulate Filter System on Diesel Aerosols and Nitric Oxides in Mine Air6/1/2008 - Conference papersThis NIOSH study was conducted to establish the effects of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) system with sintered metal substrate on the concentrations and size distributions of nano and ultrafine aerosols and concentrations of nitric oxides in undergro...
11/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA discussion the spatio-temporal volumetric strains in a consolidated Pittsburgh seam coal sample which were evaluated while both confining pressure and carbon dioxide CO2 pore pressure were evaluated.
Portable XRF Analysis of Occupational Air Filter Samples from Different Workplaces Using Different Samplers: Final Results, Summary and Conclusions11/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper concludes a five-year program on research into the use of a portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer for analyzing lead in air sampling filters from different industrial environments, including mining, manufacturing and recycling.
10/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe primary goal of this study was to investigate the formation of combustion-generated particles derived from lubrication oil in the absence of fuel-produced soot.
10/1/2007 - Conference papersA paper describing tests conducted in the NIOSH Diesel Laboratory at the Lake Lynn Laboratory experimental mine, a facility developed to allow evaluation of control technologies directly in an underground environment.
8/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper describes ignition tests on pulverised coal suspensions using a suite of coals of different rank and from different countries of origin and over a range of oxygen and coal concentrations of interest for oxyfuel combustion.
Comparing Measurements of Carbon in Diesel Exhaust Aerosols Using the Aethalometer, NIOSH Method 5040, and SMPS4/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe objective of this paper is to compare the results among (1) a NIOSH published standard to determine the mass of EC and OC on filter samples, (2) the aethalometer, which uses light extinction to measure "black carbon" or BC, and (3) measuring particl...
4/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper identifies and characterizes nanometer and ultrafine aerosols emitted by diesel engines in the underground environment and evaluates the effects of selected contemporary control technologies.
1/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper reviews the potential hazards from toxic fumes produced by detonating explosives in surface mining and construction operations. Techniques to protect workers and the public from the hazards of explosive-related toxic fumes are discussed.
