Abstract Description of a mine model for research in determining optimum cooling power of air circulated in underground mines using forced ventilation and refrigeration techniques. Mathematical formulae for airway heat load, air cooling capacity. Economic aspects, and effects of workplace conditions on productivity; acclimatisation; heat stroke hazard; description of a method for financial evaluation; results of analysis and review of optimisation methods; formulae giving optimal values for each parameter.
