This revised edition presents an engineering design approach to ventilation and air conditioning as part of the comprehensive environmental control of the mine atmosphere. It provides an in-depth look, for practitioners who design and operate mines, into the health and safety aspects of environmental conditions in the underground workplace.
New edition of a text for a one semester undergraduate course assuming a background in the basic and engineering sciences and introductory mining engineering courses. Presents an integrated engineering design approach to mine ventilation and air conditioning through simultaneous control of quality, quantity, and temperature-humidity of the underground atmospheric environment. Also directed to practitioners in the field who design or operate mines. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
