Simulating the Effect of Release of Pressure and Dust Lifting on Coal Dust Explosions
Dispersion of accumulated layers of combustible dust by turbulent flow or shock waves ahead of a propagating flame can play an important role for explosion propagation in coal mines. In 1924, Greenwald and Wheeler ...
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 ...
Possibilities, limitations, and the way ahead for dust explosion modelling
(Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), 2006)
The purpose of the present paper is threefold. First, a brief review of modelling, main results, and preliminary conclusions from the DESC project are presented; current capabilities and limitations of the DESC code are ...
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 ...
