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.
8/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNIOSH conducted a statistical study of available data regarding frictional ignitions in the United States from 1983 to 2005 to determine and define conditions controlling their occurrence.
Modeling Methane Emissions and Ventilation Needs by Examination of Mining Induced Permeability Changes and Related Damage to Ventilation Controls6/1/2009 - Conference papersThis paper aims to examine the effects of porosity and permeability changes of the coal seam on methane emissions in an underground continuous miner section.
Reservoir Rock Properties of Coal Measure Strata of the Lower Monongahela Group, Greene County (Southwestern Pennsylvania), from Methane Control and Production Perspectives3/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study presents reservoir and elastic properties of coal measure rocks in the Lower Monongahela Group in Greene County, southwestern Pennsylvania, with results that can be used as data sources for reservoir studies related to methane control.
11/1/2008 - Conference papersThis work by NIOSH has modelled the impacts of borehole pattern and design and the effects of increasing face length on gob gas venthole performance.
Coal Bed Discontinuity Effects on the Production of Degasification Boreholes and on Emissions During Longwall Mining10/1/2008 - Conference papersThis study presents a numerical investigation of geological discontinues in the coalbed using reservoir simulations of the effects of partings and permeability facies and lithotype changes on the production performances of vertical and horizontal degasi...
Effects of Sintered Metal Diesel Particulate Filter System on Diesel Aerosols and Nitric Oxides in Mine Air6/1/2008 - Conference papersThis NIOSH study was conducted to establish the effects of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) system with sintered metal substrate on the concentrations and size distributions of nano and ultrafine aerosols and concentrations of nitric oxides in undergro...
6/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article describes the Coal Dust Explosibility Meter (CDEM), a hand-held instrument developed by NIOSH, which uses optical reflectance to measure the explosibility of a rock dust and coal dust mixture, which is now commercially available.
Artificial Neural Networks to Determine Ventilation Emissions and Optimum Degasification Strategies for Longwall Mines6/1/2008 - Conference papersThis study proposes a principle component analysis (PCA) and artificial neural network (ANN) approach to predict the ventilation methane emission rates of U.S. longwall mines and the optimum combination of degasification boreholes based on the given cha...
4/1/2008 - Information CircularsThis report presents a historical framework detailing the impact of geologic features on excess gas emissions and resultant mine explosions.
