10/22/2016 - Research projectsA project to develop engineering guidelines for support design that will reduce groundfall fatalities under supported roof in underground coal mines.
10/22/2016 - Research projectsA project to develop guidelines for determining the appropriate level of support and design methods for support systems to minimize the risk and severity of injuries to miners from rib falls in underground coal mines.
9/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA journal article describing a thermal model of a 23-person tent-type refuge alternative (RA). Testing using this model showed increases in temperature and relative humidity over the 96-hour test period.
A contract to simulate the development and evolution of natural gas (NG) explosions in mine tunnels.
A capacity-building contract to understand the time-dependent behavior of some coal measure rocks under certain loading conditions, evaluate post-failure behavior, and acquire reliable site-specific input properties for numerical modeling.
A contract to develop models of MF propagation in mines based on the results simulated through full-wave electromagnetic models.
Efficiency Improvement Study of Mine Rescue Breathing Apparatus and Development of an Improved Prototype CCBA7/19/2016 - Interagency agreementsAn interagency agreement to investigate alternative system designs or current system modifications for mine rescue breathing apparatus, to determine the extent of potential efficiency improvements.
7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to design, develop, and deliver a test and measurement tool based on a proof-of-concept model for mapping wireless coverage areas in underground coal mines.
7/18/2016 - Interagency agreementsAn interagency agreement to develop modeling and simulation tools to evaluate the performance of underground mine wireless communications networks.
7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to establish guidelines for mine seal design under static and dynamic loading conditions from gas and/or dust explosions within sealed areas.
