Abstract

As underground mines become deeper and ventilation networks more complex, ventilation data becomes more complicated and voluminous, making timely ventilation planning and necessary changes more difficult. Oftentimes, ventilation engineers have to rely on special techniques using graphs and schematic maps to carry out necessary ventilation planning. A different graphical method, similar to that reported by Taminago and Isobe, has been developed in China. This method uses a two-dimensional diagram drawn from available ventilation survey results. It combines both the customary pressure-quality diagram and ventilation schematic, and can greatly expedite the interpretation of survey results, facilitate ventilation system, short and long range planning, and emergency planning.
