The Use of Light Scattering and Ion Chamber Responses for the Detection of Fires in Diesel Contaminated Atmospheres6/1/2002 - Peer reviewed journal articlesExperiments were conducted to determine the optical scattering properties of diesel particulate matter (DPM) and various combustion aerosols from both flaming and smoldering combustion sources at discrete angles of 151 and 301 in the forward direction...
2/1/2002 - Conference papersReport on a NIOSH study to identify factors that may contribute to nitrogen oxides (NOx) production associated with non-ideal detonation of blasting agents.
9/1/2001 - Book chaptersA summary of aerosol measurement technology currently used in the U.S. mining industry as it relates to regulation, research and personal exposure monitoring.
5/1/2001 - Conference papersThis paper covers the development of NIOSH's modified direct method to measure the gas content of coal samples.
5/1/2001 - Technology NewsNIOSH tech news report on an incident where CO generated from blasting at a strip mine migrated through the ground into a nearby home, poisoning the occupants.
1/1/2001 - Conference papersStudy of toxic fumes produced by the detonation of ANFO/emulsion blends. An extension of previous ANFO fumes production research that includes an emulsion blasting agent.
7/1/2000 - Peer reviewed journal articlesBecause of the need to provide short-term or real-time estimates of worker respirable dust exposure, porous foam may be a viable classification media for a low flow rate, disposable respirable dust sampler for use in the coal mining industry.
