Title A new computer programme for precalculating microclimate in locally ventilated underground mine workings
Original title Ein neues EDV-Programm zur Klimavorausberechnung für sonderbewetterte Grubenbaue [in German]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1980, Vol.41, No.5, p.197-203. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract Design and potential of a computer programme intended primarily for mechanically worked underground mines with positive-pressure local ventilation. The input data capacity includes the following variables: 3 rock temperatures; 3 mining depths; 3 rock types; 2 drivage speeds; 2 road cross sections; and 2 roadway ages. Provision for automatic calculation of equivalent thermal conductivity and water temperatures upstream and downstream of the air cooling units. The programme can handle up to 2 main ventilation ducts, 2 auxiliary ventilation ducts and up to 5 air-cooling or heating units. The ventilation ducts can be subdivided into sections of different lengths.
