Mining Publication: Analytical Investigations of Electromagnetic Location Schemes Relevant to Mine Rescue: Part I - Executive Summary; Part II - Collected Reprints - Analytical Investigations of Electromagnetic Location Schemes Relevant to Mine Rescue
Original creation date: December 1974
This volume contains a summary of past analyses that are relevant to electromagnetic location in mine rescue situations. The analytical results indicated that detection of a trapped miner equipped with a special transmitter is feasible in most situations. Location of the miner by surface measurements is also generally feasible within certain errors. The feasibility of miner detection and the accuracy of miner location have been examined theoretically for a wide variety of situations. Agreement with experimental results is generally good in cases in which measurements are available.
