Title

Ventilation Teaching and Research Using a Computerized Scale Model

Editor(s)

Wang, Y. J.

Abstract

Recent developments in electronic sensing and increasingly affordable computers made mine atmospheric monitoring both technically and economically feasible. Proper monitoring can help to improve safety and lead to direct cost savings due to better ventilation system designs. This report describes some of the efforts of incorporating this technique at the Mining Engineering Department at the University of Missouri-Rolla, into teaching of ventilation by using a large scale coal mine model and micro-computers. This has been proven to be very effective.
