3/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study describes the development of an expert classification system used as a decision tool which can be used for degasification system selection using site- and mine-specific conditions.
11/1/2008 - Reports of InvestigationsA joint MSHA and NIOSH study simulated actual coal mine explosion accidents to evaluate blast effects on typical U.S. mine ventilation stoppings, and presents construction and testing methods, explosion test data, and post-explosion conditions.
6/10/2019 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing a study conducted in NIOSH's Longwall Instrumented Aerodynamic Model (LIAM) to investigate the gob-face interaction, airflow patterns within the gob, and airflow dynamics on the face for varying roof caving characteristics.
7/1/2018 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing the development, applications and findings from NIOSH's Longwall Instrumented Aerodynamic Model (LIAM).
3/31/2017 - Research projectsA project to understand the dust generation and transport processes and propose ventilation designs to minimize the dust at mineral processing plants using CFD models.
Smart Ventilation to Control Airborne Pollutants and Physical Stressors in Underground Metal/Nonmetal Mines10/22/2016 - Research projectsA project to develop and implement effective interventions to control diesel particulate matter, dust, and other respirable contaminants generated and liberated in the metal/nonmetal mining industry.
Development of a Method for the Remote Characterization of Underground Mine Ventilation Control by Multiple Tracer Gases7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA capacity-building contract to develop a method to remotely characterize underground mine ventilation control by multiple tracer gases.
7/18/2016 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA capacity-building contract to expand on previous and existing work with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling using the FLUENT code to develop a modeling and predictive tool for mine ventilation.
10/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA report detailing ways to increase mine airflow to underground metal/nonmetal mine working areas to improve miners’ health and safety. One of those areas is controlled recirculation.
3/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA report detailing the results of two controlled recirculation tests over three days at a Wyoming trona mine, utilizing an inline booster fan to improve airflow to a remote and difficult-to-ventilate development section.
