Advanced Mine Ventilation : Respirable Coal Dust, Combustible Gas and Mine Fire Control, Hardback Book

Advanced Mine Ventilation : Respirable Coal Dust, Combustible Gas and Mine Fire Control Hardback


Advanced Mine Ventilation presents the reader with a unique book providing the theory and applications for designing mine ventilation with computers, controlling respirable coal dust and diesel particulate matter, combustible gas control and, mine fire management.

The book summarizes the latest knowledge created in the past 40 years in these areas.

Authored by an expert in the field with 50 years' experience, the book is a great combination of theory and applications.

The mine ventilation section provides computer programs (both FORTRAN and C++) to calculate not only air quantities and pressure losses but also the concentration of any pollutant in all junctions and branches of the mine network.

Small particle mechanics and dust control is covered in the second section of the book.

The third section on combustible gas control discusses all aspects of mine gases from origin to control.

The last section on mine fire control discusses spontaneous combustion, frictional ignitions, mine explosions, and mine sealing and recovery.

The book is not only a very good reference book but also an excellent textbook for two graduate level courses in Mining Engineering.
