This report presents the research program and the status report 1984- 1988 for the Generic Mineral Technology Center for Respirable Dust (dust center). The primary goal of the dust center is to reduce the incidence and severity of respirable dust disease through advancement of the fundamental understanding of all aspects of respirable dust associated with mining and milling and the interaction of dust and lungs through (1) research, (2) graduate and undergraduate students, (3) training engineers and scientists, (4) technology transfer and (5) reference center library. A coordinated and integrated research effort to study the scientific, engineering, and medical components of the respirable dust problem in the following five areas is underway: dust generation, dust dispersion and dilution, dust characterization, interaction of dust and lungs, and relationship of seam characteristics to dust generation and mobility. This research has been supported by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Mineral Institute Program administered by the Bureau of Mines through the Generic Mineral Technology Center for Respirable Dust under Grant Number G1135142.
