7/1/2015This publication of conference proceedings discusses a recently developed series of models by NIOSH utilizing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to study gas distribution around a continuous mining machine.
CFD Modeling of Methane Distribution at a Continuous Miner Face With Various Curtain Setback Distances7/1/2015 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA report focused on validating a series of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models using full-scale ventilation gallery data that assessed how curtain setback distance impacted airflow patterns and methane distributions at an empty mining face.
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.
11/5/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA capacity-building contract focused on developing practical mine ventilation engineering tools for safe and effective massive underground mining operations.
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.
8/15/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to determine the factors that most affect signal transmission and reception for through-the-earth communication systems.
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.
