SponCom - a computer program for the prediction of the spontaneous combustion potential of an underground coal mine, part 1 of 2.
MISSING :21009 pages
Part 1 of 2. The United States Bureau of Mines (USBM) developed SponCom to aid in the assessment of the spontaneous combustion risk of an underground mining operation. A prior knowledge of the spontaneous combustion risk of the coal and factors that increase that risk can be useful in the planning and development of proactive monitoring, ventilation, and prevention plans for the mining operation. Interactive data input screens prompt the user for information about the coals chemical and physical properties, the geologic and mining conditions encountered in the mining of the coal, and the mining practices employed. During the input process, expand screens provide the user with specific information on each input parameter. This information includes a description of the parameter and its effect on the overall spontaneous combustion risk.
