Determination of Velocity Correction Factors for Real-time Air Velocity Monitoring in Underground Mines12/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing a comprehensive airflow measurement study using three measuring methods, including single-point reading, moving traverse, and fixed-point traverse.
9/1/2017 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing an innovative silica monitoring approach NIOSH is developing that would generate silica concentration data right on site, immediately after collecting a respirable dust sample.
6/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing a NIOSH experiment that showed that the heat release rate of a mine fire can be calculated with reasonable accuracy using atmospheric monitoring systems sensor data.
3/30/2017 - Research projectsA project to explore and refine advanced event detection, location, and magnitude estimation methods that can be used to increase seismic catalog quality.
12/17/2016 - Research projectsA project to investigate the feasibility potential to develop and implement IIoT concepts into the mining industry.
11/22/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to explore how Roof Resistivity Monitoring can be used as both a real-time warning system as well as a means of locating problem areas to guide engineers to adjust their support methods.
11/21/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract on passive seismic tomography for monitoring stress redistribution at the Galena Mine.
A project to evaluate the feasibility of using Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR), a remote sensing technology based on laser reflection, as a dust monitoring tool in the mining industry.
A project to develop engineering data to improve knowledge of mine fires and their interactions with mine ventilation networks; atmospheric monitoring systems; and fire, prevention, detection, and suppression systems.
A project to develop guidelines to assess ventilation effectiveness in underground coal mines using improved sampling protocols and defining optimal instrument locations for continuous-reading airflow and methane monitors.
