Title Influence of air volume on the climate of mineworkings
Original title Einfluss der Wettermenge auf das Grubenklima im Abbau [in German]
Bibliographic information 1984, Vol.120, No.20, p.1318-1323. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract The temperature of mineworkings is calculated with the help of a computer programme. Factors considered include air circulation and thermal characteristics. Particularly important is the influence of air circulation at the working face on the effective temperature. Heat absorption by ventilation and cooling capacity are also considered.
