EVADE 2.1 has been updated with expanded video and data features to make it a more generalized and powerful tool.
1/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNIOSH researchers completed field trials during coal mine rescue contests using simulated gas detectors in place of placards, and demonstrated that the newly developed GMS device may be used with no adverse impact on team contest performance.
8/1/2009 - Conference papersThis paper describes network installation and methods used to collect, process, and distribute seismicity information collected on the surface above two longwall coal mines in western Colorado, and gives several examples of the collected data.
12/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses methods of preventing CO migration, lessening migrated CO, and detecting CO in underground enclosed spaces and may help reduce exposure of area residents to CO and help prevent unnecessary regulations and blasting limitations.
7/1/2008 - Conference papersThis paper describes a seismic network installed in western Colorado in the vicinity of three underground coal mines, its features for user access to data, and then gives two examples of seismic events resulting in some damage to mine workings.
9/1/2006 - Reports of InvestigationsThis report includes the theory of operation, description, and the performance of the Personal Dust Monitor (PDM) compared to gravimetric-based reference dust sampling methods and laboratory verification of the instruments accuracy.
4/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAt an underground stone mine, a modified stress-control mine layout is reducing hazardous conditions associated with excessive horizontal stress. Findings show that the layout provides more stable conditions, resulting in a safer working environment.
2/1/2002 - Conference papersA deep longwall coal mine was instrumented with a 3-D microseismic system to help determine the exact strata mechanics associated with rock failure, redistribution of stress and associated gob formation from the longwall.
7/1/2001 - Conference papersOutlines the concepts used to correlate rock failure with microseismic events and presents examples of microseismic monitoring together with associated computer modeling of the rock failure from several mine sites.
11/1/2000 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe Roof Monitoring Safety System (RMSS) is described, compared to other roof-monitoring technology, and described in context with proactive ground control plans for stone mines.
