Measurements and Computer Analysis of Ventilation Airflow At the Lake Lynn Laboratory.
Ch 66 Proc SME-AIME 1S Conf on Use of Comp in Coal Ind soc min eng 1983 :547-578
A prediction was made of the airflow at the Bureau of Mines Lake Lynn Laboratory with a ventilation computer program that accounts for fan-driven forced ventilation and temperature-induced natural ventilation. There was substantial agreement between measured and predicted airflow rates. The capability of the program is demonstrated as a planning aid for ventilation under emergency conditions in a multilevel coal mine. Smoke spread in a multilevel mine is analyzed following the occurrence of two events, the failure of the main exhaust fan and the development of a fuel-rich fire in a passageway.
