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.
Modernization and Further Development of the NIOSH Mine Emergency Response Training System (MERITS), Phase 19/17/2012 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to develop a modernized and improved version of the NIOSH Mine Emergency Response Interactive Training Simulation (MERITS), making it compatible with modern computer systems.
CFD modelling of sampling locations for early detection of spontaneous combustion in long-wall gob areas1/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesIn this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling was conducted to optimize gas sampling locations for the early detection of spontaneous heating in longwall gob areas.
12/1/2011 - Technology NewsTo update the current SPONCOM software to SponCom 2.0 with a Windows-based platform, using tabs and easy-to-navigate screens for entering or selecting data.
9/1/2011 - PC softwareSoftware to aid mining operators, regulatory bodies, and consultants in the assessment of the spontaneous combustion risk of an underground mining operation.
9/1/2011 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA modified semi-empirical equation based on large-scale experiments conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) was developed to quantify smoke rollback during an underground mine fire.
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.
11/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper answers the following research question: Can a VR system be used in a mine safety training environment to teach evacuation procedures, provide simulated experience, and measure performance?
