Transitent-stat simulation of ventilation systems in fire conditions.
Third International Mine Ventilation Congress, June 13-19, 1984, Harrogate, England. MJ Howes, MJ Jones, eds., London, United Kingdom: The Institution of Mining and Metallurgy, 1984 Jun; :407-410
Described are programs developed since 1980 that allow the real-time calculation of fume or other contaminant concentration distributions. The assumptions on which they are based and the program logic are outlined. Amendments allow determination of the exposure of miners to fumes or other contaminants. Cooperation with 'sting emergency evacuation programs is possible. The latest programs aim at the complete transient-state simulation of all ventilation properties.
