An Illumination System for a Shortwall Mining Section.
NTIS: PB/81-128019 :177 pages
A program to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate a lighting system concept for a working shortwall coal mine section based on the application of lighting system components used in conventional, continuous, and longwall mining sections is described. The objective was achieved by employing an aboveground simulated working place to test and evaluate lighting systems prior to installation underground. The simulator tests were subsequently verified through actual underground tests.
