For the past four years, the Department of Mining Engineering at the University of Kentucky has conducted a validation study of the CFD Fluent code, by comparing its results against mining-related benchmark experimental data provided by NIOSH's Pittsburgh Research Laboratory. This particular study is dedicated to the effect of machine-mounted dust scrubbers on the performance of face ventilation systems using extended-cut mining with a blowing curtain. <a href="http://www.smenet.org/docs/meetings/2008/042.ppt"target="_blank">PowerPoint</a> and <a href="http://www.smenet.org/docs/meetings/2008/042.mp3"target="_blank">MP3</a> files are available.
