Abstract
The objectives of this investigation were to (1) develop safe practice guidelines that will minimize the chance of fires in underground fueling areas and (2) to develop a low-cost, reliable, automatic fire control system (afcs) for underground fueling areas. Volume I of the report covered the period from June 21, 1976, to September 30, 1977, and included (1) the preparation of safe practice guidelines for underground fueling areas; (2) preparation of recommended afcs design concepts for underground fueling areas; and (3) the design, fabrication, and in-mine fire test of an afcs at Pine Creek Mine, Bishop, California. Volume II of the report covers the period from September 30, 1977, to September 30, 1981, and includes (1) a long-term validation test of the afcs in the Pine Creek Mine, (2) a study of the environmental effects of aqueous film-forming foam, (3) the design and installation of a system at Amax Buick Mine, Boss, Missouri, (4) the design of a system for enclosed fuel areas, and (5) the design of a system for semipermanent fueling areas.
