Abstract
A comprehensive report was prepared dealing with the influence of accidental fires in underground mines on the ventilation of underground mines. The primary objective of the study was to obtain and evaluate all available information (mostly from foreign sources) dealing with methods of prediction of disturbances in a ventilation system by a mine fire. Particular aspects considered are as follows: properties of mine fires, temperatures of fumes behind the fire zone, forces developed by fumes, and qualitative and quantitative prediction of disturbances caused by fires. The compilation of results indicates that the interaction of ventilation flows and fires can be predicted with more accuracy than was previously assumed. The organized study and theoretical review contained in the report should be of great interest to mining engineers.
