Inaccuracy of Area Sampling for Measuring the Dust Exposure of Mining Machine Operators in Coal Mines2/1/2002 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study examines the accuracy of area sampling for measuring the dust exposure of mining machine operators at coal mine working faces. The work was prompted by the development of a prospective new type of dust sampling instrument called the machine-...
6/1/2001 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper describes laboratory experiments in a wind tunnel with a roll crusher to identify relationships among crushing parameters, product size, coal rank properties and airborne dust generation.
2/1/1991 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper describes a U.S. Bureau of Mines investigation of large-scale coal dust explosions in an experimental mine using a high-speed electropneumatic mechanism for rapid grab-sampling of gases and dusts and shows the benefits of the technique.
