Aims of the Course 

The aim of the course is to introduce students to broad themes and concepts relating to mine ventilation and how to engage with these critically. In particular the students will be introduced to the scientific principles relevant to all related engineering aspects around air flow dynamics including the use of instruments, air pollution aspects and water reticulation including energy recovery systems, pump systems, mine ventilation and the planning and implementation of mine ventilation systems in particular the design, application of fan formulae applicability of different types of fans.


Course Content

The course will include: Natural ventilation, shock-losses, airflows in series and parallel air ways, pressure loss calculations, Atkinson's equation and friction factors, fundamental principles of airflow, parameters and compressibility limits, regulators, theory of fans, fan characteristics and fan selection.


Learning Outcome

After completion of this course students should be able to:

  • Use engineering methods, skill and tool to solve air flow ventilation problems.
  • Understand air and water flow in mine ventilation .
  • Apply mathematical, scientific and engineering knowledge relating to air flow dynamics
  • Communicate complex ideas in a variety of formats to diverse audiences relating to air flow dynamics.


Method of Assessment

Successful completion of an exam (70%) and assessment (30%).


Number of Notional Study Hours: 100
