6/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing NIOSH's mine fire simulation program, MFIRE, which is used as a standard for assessing and predicting the impact of a fire on the mine ventilation system and the spread of fire contaminants in coal and metal/nonmetal mines.
5/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article by NIOSH discusses a new, simple radio frequency RF testing system that can be conveniently built and used for measuring radio propagation in tunnels.
5/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study that describes the computer modeling of how carbon monoxide moves through an underground mine ventilation network during a fire event.
4/29/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA capacity-building contract to investigate safety aspects of mine ventilation through technical development and training.
3/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article by NIOSH discusses a software program that estimates the loss of hearing ability caused by occupational noise exposures.

7/1/2015This publication of conference proceedings discusses a recently developed series of models by NIOSH utilizing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to study gas distribution around a continuous mining machine.
5/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA report detailing the reults a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model that was developed to simulate the interaction between the ventilation airflow, the belt flame spread, and the water spray system in a mine entry.
8/4/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA capacity-building contract to improve ventilation tasks in deep and hot underground mines to decrease injury risks; improve working conditions; meet occupational, environmental, and health standards; and reduce costs to stay competitive.
7/18/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to leverage the on-going development of the new generation Tandem Track (TT) snake robot, by modifying this new system in a way that makes it suitable for operations in underground mines.
