Abstract
This report presents a computer code for predicting the characteristics of laminar, premixed, propagating, coal dust flames. The code is the result of a research program to improve understanding of the mechanisms of coal dust flame propagation and extinguishment. This work is a part of a larger Bureau of Mines research program on control of coal dust explosions in coal mines. This program, initiated in June 1972, comprised experimental coal dust flame measurements, together with development of the theory for laminar, premixed coal dust flames. Details of extensive experimental results for methane-air, coal dust-air, and coal dust- air-suppressant tests are documented in Volume I of this report. The theoretical basis for flame was also reported in Volume I, together with the solution techniques and a summary of extensive code predictions and comparisons with experimental measurements.
