Title: Simulation of mine conditions improves ventilation planning

Abstract

A major function of the MSHA Denver Technical Support Center's ventilation branch is providing an engineering analysis of underground mine ventilation systems for coal and metal/nonmetal inspection departments. Answers to such health and safety problems as control of diesel contaminants, dust, methane, radon, and radon daughters depend upon ventilation. Installed and soon to be completely operational at the Denver facility is an electronic mine ventilation simulator, or analog which is expected to deliver fast solutions to complex mine ventilation problems that have in the past required tedious, time-consuming periods of manual calculation.
