Computational modeling of barometric pressure fluctuation effects on explosive methane-air mixtures in a longwall mine gob
The coal mining industry remains a major player in electrical power generation for the United States. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that coal made up the second largest share after natural gas, approximately 30%, of the total electricity generated in 2016, further, it projected to remain significant for the next several decades together with natural gas and renewable sources (U.S. Energy Information Administration, 2017). Longwall mining has become more frequently used for extracting coal seams underground due to increased safety and higher productivity (EMFI, 2010) ...
