Abstract
This paper indicates that although the Bureau of Mines has developed sound technical solutions to address the mining industry's excess methane emission problems, a problem still exists in how to transfer this knowledge into all the different mine scenarios exhibiting high methane emissions. An obvious solution in this age of computers is to provide every mine with a computer program capable of analyzing a mine's methane problem and recommending methane control strategies to permit the safe extraction of coal. A knowledge-based expert system was selected as the mechanism by which the transfer of knowledge could best be made. This paper illustrates the expert- level decision making process for applying methane drainage techniques to underground coal mines and how it is being reduced to a comprehensive set of production rules for implementation in a methane control expert system known as methpro.
