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.
Health and Safety Management Systems Through a Multilevel and Strategic Management Perspective: Theoretical and Empirical Considerations2/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesMultilevel and strategic management theory and research methods are presented and applied to current issues in occupational health and safety, the goal to better understand health and safety management systems from a theoretical and empirical perspective.
2/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article introducing a hybrid approach to modeling medium-frequency communications in coal mines.
Earth Conductivity Estimation from Through-the-Earth Measurements of 94 Coal Mines Using Different Electromagnetic Models10/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn analyis of TTE measurement data collected from 94 mines in order to determine the apparent conductivity of the overburden based on three different models: a homogenous half-space model, a thin sheet model, and an attenuation factor or Q-factor model.
3/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA report detailing the results of two controlled recirculation tests over three days at a Wyoming trona mine, utilizing an inline booster fan to improve airflow to a remote and difficult-to-ventilate development section.
