Empirical Engineering Models for Airborne Respirable Dust Capture from Water Sprays and Wet Scrubbers12/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article presenting a dimensionless empirical model developed for predicting airborne dust capture efficiency of water sprays and wet scrubbers.
9/27/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing an evaluation of MFIRE, a mine fire simulation software based on ventilation networks, for its carbon monoxide spread prediction capabilities using experimental results from large-scale diesel fuel and conveyor belt fire tests.
7/1/2018 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing the development, applications and findings from NIOSH's Longwall Instrumented Aerodynamic Model (LIAM).
Dust Control by Air-blocking Shelves and Dust Collector-to-Bailing Airflow Ratios for a Surface Mine Drill Shroud5/17/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models to examine the effects of air-blocking shelves on airflows and respirable dust distribution associated with medium-sized surface blasthole drill shrouds as part of a dry dust collector system.
An FMM-FFT Accelerated SIE Simulator for Analyzing EM Wave Propagation in Mine Environments Loaded with Conductors5/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article presenting an FMM-FFT-SIE full-wave simulator used to characterize EM wave propagation in electrically large and loaded mine environments.
5/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study exploring the geomechanics of bench room-and-pillar mining and the associated response of high pillar ribs at overburden depths greater than 300 m.
