The master design simulator (MDS) has a wide range of possible applications in the design and evaluation of underground coal mining systems from the standpoints of health and safety, productivity, and mine-environment. The MDS consists of nine free-standing, function-oriented subsystem models linked together into an integrated, comprehensive model of an entire mining system. The subsystems comprising the MDS include geology and reserves, methane generation, roof support, subsidence, production rail haulage, cost, water generation, and ventilation.
