The underground structures of different mines are different. The works on underground mine fire detection (Tan et al.,Edwards et al., ) are either specifically focused on certain types of mines such as gas mines (Nebiker and Pleisch, ), or are focused on the sensor network technological issues.

If this is an emergency call immediately. A land mine is an explosive device concealed under or on the ground and designed to destroy or disable enemy targets, ranging from combatants to vehicles and tanks, as they pass over or near it.

Such a device is typically detonated automatically by way of pressure when a target steps on it or drives over it, although other detonation mechanisms are also sometimes used. CASE STUDY # CENTRALIA UNDERGROUND MINE FIRE, PENNSYLVANIA.

A: Carbon monoxide may be found in small quantities after blasting and will be found after an explosion or in the return from a mine fire and use of diesel equipment underground. Q: What does the presence of CO in a sealed mine area indicate. A: A fire. Fire prevention, as a concept, is the system of rules and procedures for trying to prevent fires from happening and limit their spread if they occur.

Fire prevention includes educating people how. William H. Pomroy has written: 'Rapid response pneumatic fire detection for multilevel metal mines' -- subject(s): Air sampling apparatus, Mine fires, Prevention and control, Fire detectors. Underground Mining & Miner Monitoring Products Mining operations require constant, vigilant monitoring from several different perspectives.

Monitoring the complex series of belts and motor controls across long distances that bring the coal from deep underground to load-out facilities on the surface is a practical necessity.

The current state of the art of fire and smoke detection technology is reviewed from the standpoint of suitability for use in under- ground metal and nonmetal mines. Detection modes, fire signatures, and environmental considerations are included. Preliminary results of long- Cited by: 2.

The first gas detector in the industrial age was the flame safety lamp (or Davy lamp) was invented by Sir Humphry Davy (of England) in to detect the presence of methane (firedamp) in underground coal mines.

The flame safety lamp consisted of an oil flame adjusted to specific height in fresh air. Requirements Applicable to Underground Coal Mines § Scope of chapter.
