Abstract
The goal of the U.S. Bureau of Mines diesel engine research program is to reduce exhaust emissions and minimize the risk of fires and explosions caused by the use of diesel-powered equipment in underground mines. Significant results of research conducted during the last 5 years are briefly described, with references to published reports on specific topics. Topics covered here include brief discussions of a newly completed Diesel Research Laboratory, the effects of a fuel additive on diesel exhaust particulate matter, the effect of diesel engine maintenance on emissions, a diesel particulate filter for equipment used in underground metal, nonmetal, and coal mines, and the prototyupe hydrogen-powered mine vehicle. These research accomplishments could favorably affect the mining industry by reducing the health and safety hazards associated with the use of diesel-powered equipment in underground mines.
