Real-time Precalculation of the Distribution of Combustion Products and Other Contaminants in the Ventilation System of Mines.
NTIS: PB/82-183104 :263 pages
Two computer programs for the real-time calculation of concentration distributions in the ventilation system of underground mines were designed. The programs allow simulation of the movement of fumes or other contaminants with the ventilating air, the calculation of concentrations at any given time and location, and the determination of the total contaminant exposure at different places in the mine. Multiple and time variable contaminant sources can be handled and recirculation is no obstacle. The first program is based on an airflow distribution which has, in the input data, to be stated. The second program has been linked to an existing program for the calculation of airflow distributions. Several executed examples demonstrate the program performance.
