Abstract
Fourteen commonly used mine materials were evaluated for combustibility in a small-scale apparatus. The data obtained and predictions of these data from large-scale fires were successfully validated for conveyor belting, brattice cloth, and treated and untreated wood. All the wood treatments except fireguard were found to be effective for reducing the fire hazard. Five parameters proposed for rating mine materials are (1) ignition and flame spread, (2) generation of combustible vapors, (3) generation of heat, (4) generation of toxic and corrosive products, and (5) light obscuration by smoke particulates.
