Title Measurement of ventilation flow rates in an emergency situation
Original title Mesure des débits d'aérage en situation d'urgence [in French]
Bibliographic information 1982, No.5, Supplement to May issue 1982, p.315-317.
Abstract Description of methods for rapidly determining, e.g. in the event of fire, a mine roadway cross-section or the airflow velocity. The error may be up to 20% in the measurement of cross section and up to 10% in the measurement of air velocity; the total error will be a maximium of 30%.
