11/1/2008 - Conference papersThis article discusses how narrative-based training has evolved and is likely to continue changing in the future using the Underground Coal Mine Map Reading Training (UCMMRT) developed by NIOSH.
8/1/2004 - Conference papersThis paper focuses on a computer simulation used to model roof behavior and rock bolt interaction in a collaborative study of ground behavior, reinforcement performance, and stress redistribution in a coal mine entry under severe horizontal stress.
5/1/2004 - Conference papersA case study is presented that relates statistical descriptions of joint sets to the distribution of local wedge failures along the crest of a catch bench at the Yellowstone Talc Mine.
6/1/2010 - Conference papersA multi-gas simulated gas monitor system (GMS) is a wireless simulation tool. It is designed to assist mine rescue team members learn about gas detection, gas concentrations, and encourage subsequent decision-making actions by team members.
Development of Multiple Regression Functions for Performance Prediction of Gob Gas Ventholes for Sealed and Active Longwall Mines2/1/2010 - Conference papersA discussion of the NIOSH-developed software suite for methane control and prediction (MCP) based on an artificial neural network (ANN) is presented in this paper.
Analyzing Factors Influencing Struck-by Accidents of a Moving Mining Machine by Using Motion Capture and DHM Simulations6/1/2008 - Conference papersNIOSH researchers used motion analysis data and digital human models to evaluate factors that precipitate struck-by injuries in the operation of remote continuous mining machines.
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...
Comparison of Passive Seat Suspension with Different Configuration of Seat Pads and Active Seat Suspension4/1/2008 - Conference papersThrough modeling, this paper analyzes the performance of vehicle operators when subjected to vibration from rough road conditions, and quanttifies the energy transmission in the presence of specialized seat padding and active suspension.
6/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper discusses the application of digital human models to examine computer-generated forces necessary to move specific joysticks by using roof bolter virtual operators to predict the forces experienced on the operator's upper extremities.
5/1/2004 - Conference papersResearchers are investigating the causes and mechanisms of roof failure in underground mines with the goal that better understanding these issues will lead to better layout and support designs to help prevent fall-of-ground accidents and fatalities.
