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.
9/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper discusses methods for protecting U.S. underground coal mines from explosions of methane gas and coal dust, and presents new research, such as the Coal Dust Explosibility Meter, a handheld device to directly measure coal dust explosibility.
Numerical Analysis of the Influence of In-Seam Horizontal Methane Drainage Boreholes on Longwall Face Emission Rates9/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study investigates different horizontal methane drainage borehole patterns, borehole lengths, and degasification times prior to and during panel extraction to evaluate their effectiveness in reducing methane emissions using a dynamic 3D reservoir m...
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.
Reservoir Simulation-Based Modeling for Characterizing Longwall Methane Emissions and Gob Gas Venthole Production7/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper presents the development and results of a comprehensive, "dynamic," three-dimensional reservoir model of a typical multi-panel Pittsburgh coalbed longwall mine. Results presented in this paper include a simulation of gas flow patterns from th...
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.
A Methodology for Determining Gob Permeability Distributions and its Application to Reservoir Modeling of Coal Mine Longwalls2/1/2007 - Conference papersMethane can be a significant hazard in coal mine longwalling operations and extensive methane mitigation techniques are employed by coal mine operators. Reservoir modeling techniques are used to better understand the liberation and migration of methane ...
