Abstract
This report describes heat generation (heat and oxygen transport) in such a way that existing experimental data for U.S. coals can be used to assess conditions inducive to spontaneous heatings quantitatively. The suitability of the major constituents of combustion products for an early detection of fires and gas concentration ratios is also discussed. The usefulness of monitoring the carbon monoxide-oxygen ratio compared with monitoring carbon monoxide was also investigated. An extensive literature survey is included.
