1/17/2020 - Research areasMethane is an odorless, tasteless, colorless, lighter-than-air gas formed by the decomposition of organic and other carbonaceous materials. From 5% to 15% can form an explosive mixture which, if ignited, can have catastrophic consequences.
11/1/2019 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing NIOSH's research on gas well stability in longwall pillars.
1/29/2019 - Research projectsA project to improve the capabilities to detect changing ventilation conditions along a longwall face arising from poor roof caving characteristics and increasing face length.

9/27/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing an evaluation of MFIRE, a mine fire simulation software based on ventilation networks, for its carbon monoxide spread prediction capabilities using experimental results from large-scale diesel fuel and conveyor belt fire tests.
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.
Simultaneously Reducing CO2 and Particulate Exposures via Fractional Recirculation of Vehicle Cabin Air7/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article presenting research on fractional recirculation as a simple method to reduce exposures to particulate matter and CO2 in vehicles.
11/28/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to develop intrinsically safe, low-power-consumption methane sensors for mapping of methane gas clouds accumulated in underground coal mines.
