The objective of this investigation was to develop and test automatic fire control systems for large surface machinery in surface coal mines. The effort described covers the period from January 31, 1977, to November 11, 1977, and accomplished the following tasks: (1) data accumulation, mainly from visits to the major manufacturers and mine sites. (2) Hazard analysis of blast- hole drill, mining shovel, and dragline. (3) Recommended design concepts for automatic fire control systems for each of these vehicles. (4) Detail system designs for each of these vehicles. (5) Procurement of prototype systems for the blasthole drill and mining shovel. (6) Installation of the prototype systems on machines at a surface mine and demonstration of performance by fire tests on the machines.
