AGIOUTANTIS, Z.; LUXBACHER, K.; KARMIS, M.  e  SCHAFRIK, S.. Development of an atmospheric data-management system for underground coal mines. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2014, vol.114, n.12, pp.1059-1063. ISSN 2411-9717.

With increasing demand for real-time monitoring of mine parameters, the requirement for appropriate data management in many mining applications is also increasing. This includes atmospheric monitoring in underground coal and metal mines. Although a number of different (real-time) monitoring systems have been installed in underground mines, they all typically share the same systems or sub-systems, where each sub-system may include both custom hardware and/or software components. In addition, monitoring components installed in underground coal mines in the USA should also be intrinsically safe and approved by the US Mine Safety and Health Administration. Real-time analysis adds complexity to the system since data validation and storage should be completed independently of filtering, data reduction operations, or visualization. Real-time processing may include statistical evaluation, trending, cross-correlation, and real-time alarm or warning generation. This paper presents the concept and design of an integrated system under development for atmospheric monitoring in US coal mines.

Palavras-chave : mine ventilation; real-time monitoring; data management.
