MNTC 416 Ventilation and Hydraulics F/W/S/OL | 3


Lecture: 3
Lab: 0
Tutorial: 0
Hydraulics of air flow through mine airways and ducts is studied, leading to mine ventilation design calculations and ventilation network analysis. Topics related to the design of mine ventilation systems include regulations and design criteria. Procedures for conducting air quantity and quality surveys are taught. The basics of hydraulic systems and fluid mechanics are introduced. Topics covered include fluid statics, the energy balance, the momentum balance, pumps, and mine drainage and dewatering systems. Practical applications to the mining industry will be explored.
