Tutorial: Sins of Mine Air Recirculation

Recirculation can be defined as any portion of mine airflow that travels through the same area more than once. Recirculated air has a number of undesirable and possibly dangerous consequences.

Tutorial : Dynamic Contaminants (Advanced Version)

Dynamic Contaminants offer a way to simulate the second-by-second spread of a contaminant through a mine. This simulation differs from the normal 'steady state' contaminant and gas simulations in that ventilation models can show contamination progress and concentration at any time.

Tutorial: Validating Your Ventsim™ Model

One of the most critical requirements of a Ventsim model is that it accurately represents the ventilation conditions in your mine. Without an accurate representation of current conditions, future design using the model will not be accurate and could provide misleading or incorrect results.

Tutorial: What is Mine Resistance?

Mine Resistance is the combined total of the resistance of all air moving through the mine, and is a useful figure to know, because it can be combined with Atkinsons turbulent flow pressure equation P=RQ2 to assist in calculating how much additional (or reduced) pressure may be require to achieve a certain volume flow of air through a mine.
