Mining Contract: Safety Aspects of Mine Ventilation Through Technical Development and Training

Contract DetailValue
Contract #200-2009-30678
Start Date9/1/2009
Research Concept

In support of this contract, four master's and doctoral students will (1) develop instructional material in the form of courseware; (2) develop a preliminary series of emergency-level training exercises for mine operators, miners, and mine emergency response personnel using computer-based instruction; (3) develop a dedicated, industry-oriented, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code for simulation /design of face ventilation systems; and (4) develop a 3-D model of flow behavior in the longwall gob area, validate this model using available field data collected by NIOSH during the study of gas behavior in the longwall gob, develop a 3-D model of for a fire in a coal mine, and integrate this 3-D model with an ordinary, compressible ventilation network simulator.
