Abstract
This work accomplished the following objectives: acquisition of data in accordance with the project data handling plan. Data were acquired through visits to 20 mine sites in 10 states and Canada, visits to Bureau of Mines and MESA facilities, visits to mobile equipment manufacturers, and an extensive literature search. Analysis of accumulated data that provided the following specific types of design inputs: selection of the type of mobile underground equipment found to represent the greatest overall fire hazard; typical operating conditions for the vehicle; characteristics of the reported fire experiences; and performance, cost, and maintenance factors affecting potential purchases of automatic fire control systems for underground mining equipment. Development of the afcs design concept. Utilizing the data analysis results and considering the state-of-the-art of fire control system components, a recommended design concept was developed with particular emphasis placed on the need for a low cost and reliable system.
