Underground Mine Environment 1: Ventilation and Mine Services is a must for professionals tasked with design, monitoring and practice of ventilation for the underground mine environment.
Ventilation and Mine Services is the first course in the Underground Mine Environment series of courses based on material developed by Mining Education Australia, a national joint venture initiative between the University of New South Wales, the University of Queensland, and Curtin University of Technology.
The course starts by developing an understanding of the laws, relationships and equations, and their application, required to undertake analysis of fluid flow in ventilation and gas reticulation systems associated with the underground mine environment.
Part 2 describes fan types and applications pertinent to the underground mining environment together with calculation techniques employed to predict requirements, select appropriate units, and measure performance in various configurations.
Part 3 summarises key aspects of ventilation network analysis, formulae and calculation methods to a standard required for this course.
Part 4 covers monitoring of velocity, quantity and pressure for ventilation systems either during discrete surveys or as permanent real time monitoring points.
Underground Mine Environment 1: Ventilation and Mine Services is structured in four parts and a total of 21 viewing sessions of approximately 60 minutes each, plus course reviews, appendices and extensive references. Current course duration is equivalent to approximately 25 hours of viewing content.
