Impact of environmental conditions on methane-air explosion development and propagation through rock rubble in confined spaces , The
Methane-driven explosions in underground coal mines are among the largest and deadliest industrial explosions. Over the period from 1980-2012, CDC statistics reveal that more than 150 people died in coal mine explosions in the United States alone, with well over double that number of deaths worldwide. Coal is likely to continue as a worldwide source of power well into the future, so it is imperative to human life that these explosions are prevented where potential exists and mitigated when explosive potential is realized. One approach to this task is to build an understanding of large-scale ...
