CFD Modeling of Impact of Gas Content Uncertainty on Methane Distribution in Underground Coal Mine Roadways

Sh. Rahimi; M. Ataee-pour; H. Madani

Volume 13, Issue 2 , April 2022, , Pages 493-502


  Methane has been known as a safety risk for the coal mining activities. Accordingly, one can mitigate this risk, and hence, the level of hazard to which the mining workers are exposed, by predicting the possible exceedance of allowable methane dosage should be provided with a reliable information on ...  Read More

Evaluation of Underground Mineable Reserve in Presence of Grade and Commodity Price Uncertainties

M. Shenavar; M. Ataee-pour; M. Rahmanpour

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 385-396


  The uncertainty-based mine evaluation and optimization have been regarded as a critical issue. However, it has received less attention in the underground mines than in the open-pit mines due to the diversity of the underground mining methods, and the underground mining parameters' complexity. The grade ...  Read More

A New Mathematical Model for Production Scheduling in Sub-level Caving Mining Method

M. Shenavar; M. Ataee-pour; M. Rahmanpour

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 765-778


  Production scheduling in underground mines is still a manual process, and achieving a truly optimal result through manual scheduling is impossible due to the complexity of the scheduling problems. Among the underground mining methods, sub-level caving is a common mining method with a high production ...  Read More

Application of cut set method to reliability evaluation of mine ventilation networks

Z. Rezaei; M. Ataee-pour; H. Madani

Volume 10, Issue 4 , October 2019, , Pages 947-966


  Providing a fresh and cool airflow in underground mines is one of the main concerns during mining. Destruction of support systems, the presence of undesirable objects in the airway and distortion of airflow are the parameters involved that would result in pressure loss, which would affect the ventilation ...  Read More
