Abstract
A Bureau of Mines computer program was applied to a prediction of ventilation in a small-scale test mine and in a deep multilevel working mine. In both cases, temperature-induced natural ventilation and fan-driven, forced ventilation contributed to air movement; there was substantial agreement between predicted and measured airflow rates. It was demonstrated how the real-time capability of the program can be used to simulate the spread of a stench warning throughout a mine in which an emergency has occurred. A novel application of the program to an analysis of the methane depletion from a previously sealed gassy coal mine is also presented.
