Abstract
A computer simulation has been developed to estimate the chances of a miner making a successful escape while wearing a SCSR. The model takes into account: (1) training in the use of SCSRs, (2) apparatus integrity, and (3) the oxygen cost of a mine escape. This Bureau of MInes report examines survival odds for a prototypical escape, and illustrates how these odds change when SCSR training in improved.
