Course Objectives

At the end of this course, student will:


1. Know psychrometric properties and constituent of mine air on the emphasis on mine gases and dust and gas laws and recognize the early ventilation techniques and basic concepts of mine ventilation including auxiliary and natural ventilation.

2. Understand dynamics involved in the flow of air through airways and ducts.

3. Demonstrate ability to select an appropriate fan for a primary mine ventilation by formulating and solving mine ventilation networks by applying analytical and numerical methods.

4. Know how to use a computer program on mine ventilation simulation and apply the theoretical knowledge on a ventilation design and perform laboratory experiments in a team of students and write a report for conducted experiments.
