Abstract
Cooperative research efforts by the Bureau of Mines and Agapito & Associates, Inc., Grand Junction, Colorado, used a one-dimensional, finite- element computer model to simulate turbulent mass transfer in face ventilation of oil shale mines. The objective was to study the dilution of methane released by rubbled oil shale during blasting. A methane release rate function was developed from the back-analysis of field measurements, and the finite-element model was calibrated using tracer gas characterization data from tests of full-scale face ventilation systems.
