Simplified modelling of explosion propagation by dust lifting in coal mines
(School of Engineering and Electronics, University of Edinburgh, 2007)
Dispersion of accumulated layers of combustible dust by turbulent flow or shock waves ahead of the propagating flame may sustain explosion propagation in coal mine galleries and other industrial facilities. The mechanisms ...
Modelling of vented dust explosions – empirical foundation and prospects for future validation of CFD codes
(Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), 2008)
Explosion venting is the most frequently used method for mitigating the effects from accidental dust explosions in the process industry. Optimal design of vent systems and credible execution of risk assessments in powder ...
