Abstract
The details of a three-phase (total time period of 12 months) entitled "fire alert systems for metal and nonmetal mines," are presented. Phase 1 consists of a state-of-the-art survey on fire detection devices and gas sensing techniques. Phases 2 and 3 include laboratory screening and systems concepts testing on various detectors classified as products of combustion, optical view-field and contact (or thermal) types under incipient and flaming combustion conditions. Recommendations for a mine fire detection system to protect shaft, sealed off or mined out (from spontaneous combustion of sulfide containing ores and cellulosic materials), and fuel storage areas are also included.
