Short Course: Mine Ventilation Basics And Advanced Concepts
December 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - December 6, 2017 @ 4:30 pm
The course will provide value for both the beginner and advanced ventilation engineering practitioner. The course will start with an overview of the basic relationships and foundational equations then move into study methodology, modelling methodology, and general best practices. Guest speakers from both air heating and fan vendors will enhance the ability of the attendees to provide specifications for infrastructure at their respective operations.
The course will also discuss common mistakes that are made when developing a ventilation study or designing a ventilation system. The class will develop an outline of the rationale for conducting a ventilation study with computer models. This will include discussion on how ventilation models are useful for the study of systems and what are the model limitations. It is important for engineers to be able to make adequate and educated assumptions when developing a design strategy based on modelling. These assumptions will be outlined along with the rationale for their proper application.
