Coal Mine Intellectual Fire Fighting System has many functions such as Coal Mine Fire Intellectual Prediction, Automatic producing Decisions support for rescuing, which can automatically be put in practice, can guide safety evacuation, and can organize multi-system cooperation.
The studies on Coal Mine Intellectual Fire Fighting Integration System and on the potential of current coal mine fire prevention technique, will enhance the coal mine fire prevention and rescue ability, promote coal mine safety construction, and will achieve good benefits of society and economy.
The Evolvement of the Investigation and application on coal mine fire prevention and fire fighting techniques in China is summarized. Mine fire prediction & forecast theories and methods, detection ways of coal spontaneous combustion area, mine fire prevention and fire fighting techniques, detection and control of exogenous fire beginnings, decision making support system of mine fire prevention and fire extinguishing and so on are presented in detail. Existent problems are analyzed in the investigation and application on coal mine fire prevention and fire fighting techniques in China.
The present evaluation method developed by the author is a measurable risk evaluation method. The results gained through its trial application offers not only the mining-fire-risk-indices that can be used to compare risks of different mine fires,but also make sure the probabilities of one fire that may lead to different death-tolls.
Performance of selected coatings applied to polystyrene block walls under simulated mine fire conditions
Building plasters containing gypsum and perlite and an expanded vermiculite, portland cement, and limestone coating were particularly effective in protecting the foam blocks against the heat of the simulated mine fire.
Selected coatings and one covering were tested under large-scale, simulated mine fire conditions to determine their effectiveness as a fire barrier for protection of aluminum.
Performance of concrete block and steel panel stoppings in a simulated mine fire
Environmental impact of coal mine fire during excavation of developed galleries by opencast method.
Ash disposal - mine fires - environment: an Indian dilemma
The Jharia Coalfield produces some 30?million?tonnes/year of ash and contains the world's largest complex of underground coal-mine fires, occupying an aggregate surface area of about 10?km2 above which the land surface is extremely degraded.
Coal seams and culm banks associated with mine fires in the anthracite region of eastern Pennsylvania have been burning for decades.
Jharia coalfield in Jharkhand is the richest coal bearing area in India that contains a large number of mine fires which have been burning for several decades.
Increased resource recovery, enhanced ventilation control, and minimizing surface subsidence, underground coal-mine fires and spontaneous combustion of coal are potential advantages of backfilling.
