Aung, “Modeling of Biomass Combustion in a Fluidized Bed,” Proceedings of the International Conference on Power Engineering, Kobe, Japan, November Sunil Appanaboyina. MS Thesis This work used FDS to simulate tunnel fires occur in a semi-circular longitudinally ventilated tunnel. By varying the parameters such as the tunnel gradient, the fire size, and the ventilation velocity, their influence on the backlayering effect and downstream propagation rate can be recognized. Under weak ventilation, the backlayering effect either advances or vanishes depending on the slope

    Mine fires mainly arise from spontaneous combustion of coal seams and are a global issue that has attracted increasing public attention. Particularly in china, the closure of coal workfaces because of spontaneous combustion has contributed to substantial economic loss. To reduce the occurrence of mine fires, the spontaneous coal combustion underground needs to be :// A first law based model was developed to simulate the performance of a train pulled by GE diesel-electric locomotives equipped with medium speed diesel engines in a high altitude and non-ventilated tunnel. The model was compared against and calibrated to actual tunnel operation data of EPA Tier 2

The purpose of this article is to highlight some of the important steps and precautions which a ship owner should be aware of when carrying coal cargoes and to provide a brief commentary on the various parties' legal positions in the event that loss or damage :// The regularity of radon exhalation rate in the over-broken granite tunnel is susceptible to weather conditions and ventilation styles. Based on the calculation model of radon exhalation in tunnel, some experiments have been carried out to analyze the variations of radon exhalation in cases of natural ventilation, blowing ventilation and exhaust ventilation ://

It can be detected with an & Characteristics of smoke particulates generated from a coal fire in a ventilated model tunnel were investigated by laser optical transmission and by electron microscopy.

Average particle diameter and mass concentration of the smoke were determined as a function of the temperature and stoichimoetry of the coal tunnel fire. Smoke particle sizes ranged from to μm, with larger particle. The calculation of the consequences of fire occurring in a tunnel requires a predictive model that can calculate smoke concentrations, temperatures and radiation heat fluxes.
