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.
9/1/2010 - PC softwareA software program that addresses some of the methane and methane control issues in longwall coal mines in the U.S. and other countries.
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).
The Effects of Passive Diesel Particulate Filters on Diesel Particulate Matter Concentrations in Two Underground Metal/Nonmetal Mines6/1/2010 - Conference papersIn this study, NIOSH measured the atmospheric concentrations of DPM and gases in two mines in order to evaluate the effects of various control strategies on the atmospheric DPM concentrations.
A New Method to Calculate Permeability of Gob for Air Leakage Calculations and for Improvements in Methane Control6/1/2010 - Conference papersThis study demonstrates a fractal approach to calculating permeability of gob for air leakage that allows the calculation of porosity and permeability from the size distribution of broken rock material in the gob, which can be determined from image anal...
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.
1/1/2010 - Conference papersThis paper discusses several milestone events that show the progress of methane control research in underground coal mines.
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.
Reservoir Engineering Considerations for Coal Seam Degasification and Methane Control in Underground Mines11/1/2009 - Conference papersThis paper demonstrates the applications of coal bed reservoir engineering and modeling techniques for optimizing and controlling methane emissions in longwall and continuous miner sections.
