Motion Editing and Reuse Techniques and Their Role in Studying Events Between a Machine and its Operator4/1/2002 - Conference papersThe first part of this paper is a review of several new techniques developed to facilitate the manipulation, noise reduction, storage and reuse of captured data, which have a potential to reduce the overall cost of motion simulation and improve its real...
Verification and Validation of Roof Bolter Simulation Models for Studying Events Between a Machine and its Operator6/1/2001 - Conference papersThis paper presents the results of a study to verify and validate a computer model that represents and analyzes motions and hazardous events in a simulated three-dimensional workplace. The purpose of the computer model is to support research that is in...
7/1/2000 - Conference papersIn a computer analysis of bench stability, bench-scale plane shears and tetrahedral wedges are simulated and stochastically analyzed to estimate the probability of retaining specified catch-bench widths.
1/1/2000 - Conference papersAn approach for representing and analyzing random motions and hazardous events in a simulated three-dimensional workplace, providing designers and analysts with a new technique for evaluating operator-machine interaction hazards in virtual environments.
6/1/1999 - Conference papersAn experiment is described in which instrumented rock bolts were used to measure strain in the rock mass during drift development at the Stillwater Mine, Nye, Montana, USA.
5/1/1998 - Conference papersThe U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has identified ore pass hazards as s significant safety problem in underground metal mines in the United States. Researchers at the Spokane Research Laboratory of the National Institute for Occupati...
9/1/1996 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe US Bureau of Mines has developed an alternate method for facilitating lighting system mock-ups.
SPONCOM - A Computer Program for the Prediction of the Spontaneous Combustion Potential of an Underground Coal Mine1/1/1996 - Conference papersThe United States Bureau of Mines (USBM) developed sponcom to aid in the assessment of the spontaneous combustion risk of an underground mining operation.
Rock Mechanics Study of Shaft Stability and Pillar Mining, Homestake Mine, Lead, SD (In Three Parts): 3. Geomechanical Monitoring and Modeling Using UTAH31/1/1996 - Reports of InvestigationsA U.S. Bureau of Mines case study of pillar recovery in high-grade ore near the Ross shaft at the Homestake Mine, Lead, SD, has demonstrated the usefulness of the finite-element method for evaluating shaft pillar mining plans and shaft stability. In thi...
10/1/1995 - Conference papersThe objective of the research is to prevent injuries and fatalities related to hoist and elevator operations. Monitoring and controlling mine hoisting operations will allow hoist operators, inspectors, and maintenance personnel to increase their awarene...
