NTIS: PB 298-125 :65 pages
A study was made of combustion processes involving material relating to mine fire problems. The study was made in three phases: (1) an analysis of samples, (2) a glossary and a bibliography of mine fire studies, and (3) barrier combustion studies. The first phase included an analysis of a group of samples furnished by the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration. The samples were examined by scanning electron microscopy and elemental analyses; the tests were performed by flame absorption spectroscopy, wet analytical techniques, and by using a scanning electron micrograph (sem). The results of the analyses and the sem photographs are given in the report.
