Abstract
The problem of mine fire detection is considered in terms of types of fires, past history of fire incidence, current regulations, detection methodologies, and the general strategy of fire safety. Several research programs that are in the process of being transferred to in-mine technologies are described, These include the continuing development of a tube bundle (pneumatic sampling) technique, the evaluation of a new, prototype fire sensor for combustion generated submicrometer particles, and general studies of the problem of spontaneous combustion in coal mines.
