Experimental Investigation of Airflow Behavior in a Block Cave Mine

Yong Pan* and Purushotham Tukkaraja

This paper discusses the airflow behavior in block cave mines. For this study we utilized a 1:100 scaled experimental model to investigate airflow characteristics under various cave porosity conditions, parallel fan conditions, regulated airflow systems, and changing undercut structures. Our observations from this study provide useful information to design an efficient and effective ventilation systems for block cave mines.
