4/2/2020 - Research projectsA project to develop and implement workplace solutions to reduce miners’ overexposure to hazardous airborne contaminants emitted from diesel-powered equipment.
11/1/2019 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing NIOSH's research on gas well stability in longwall pillars.
8/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper describing a study where miner size and activity level were used to determine the metabolic heat rate, oxygen requirements and carbon dioxide generation that are representative of miners in a refuge situation.
2/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study in which a series of models using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) were used to examine gas distribution around a continuous miner with various fan-powered flooded bed scrubber discharge configurations in an exhaust curtain working face.
12/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper comparing the potential of FAME biodiesel and HVORD as a control strategy to reduce the exposure of underground miners to aerosols and gases emitted by diesel-powered equipment.
