Abstract
The basic objectives of this program were to develop and test hardware to determine the efficacy of various coal mine rescue and survival techniques and concepts based on the proposal of the Bureau of Mines and a study conducted by the National Academy of Engineering. This volume covers three parts of the survival subsystem from the point of view of design, manufacture, test, and evaluation. They are (1) the personal breathing apparatus (pba), an emergency unit designed to provide a breathable atmosphere in a contaminated gaseous environment; (2) the auxiliary survival chamber, a portable self-contained 15-man refuge for trapped miners located near the working face; and (3) the large central chamber, a design for a permanent fixed installation to provide life support for as many as 50 men indefinitely.
