The Myth Of Storing Wet Charcoal and Spontaneous

2. The minimum ambient temperature required for ignition increases for smaller sample sizes, for samples containing lignite char, for wet samples, for samples not enclosed in bags, and for partially filled bags. 4. Spontaneous combustion of bagged charcoal briquets in commercially available sizes is impossible under any normal ambient conditions."

CFD Modeling of Spontaneous Heating in a Large-Scale Coal

Little modeling work has been done simulating actual underground mining conditions. Saghafi and Carras (1997) did numerical modeling of spontaneous heating in an underground coal mine with a ventila­ tion system, but their work was also limited to two dimensions. In this study, a three-dimensional CFD modeling of spontaneous

Risk profiling and control of spontaneous combustion for

Abstract The Leigh Creek Coal Mine, located approximately 550 km north of Adelaide in South Australia, operated between 1944 and 2015. The coal, being a low rank sub-bituminous coal, is prone to self-heating and localised spontaneous combustion. Throughout the many decades of mining operation a significant body of knowledge was generated regarding the causal factors and more effective

Modelling spontaneous combustion liability of

This paper presents predictive models to determine spontaneous combustion liability of carbonaceous materials (coals and coal-shales) using statistical analysis. The intrinsic properties and spontaneous combustion liability index were determined by testing 14 coals and 14 coal-shales from Witbank coalfields, South Africa. The relationship between these intrinsic properties (obtained from

Influence of granularity on thermal behaviour in the

Granularity is one of the primary extrinsic factors that can influence the process of coal spontaneous combustion. Lignite was selected for studying the influence of granularity. A self-developed temperature-programmed oil bath experimental system was adopted to capture the changes in the spontaneous combustion characteristic parameters for different particle sizes.

In-situ Observation of the Combustion of Air-Dried and Wet

Combustion sequence is similar for dry and wet coal Cloud ignition takes place via a volatile flame, which causes rapid heat-up of the particles and leads to heterogeneous char combustion Steam is evolved in the volatile flame in the wet case, decreasing flame stability and suppressing particle heat-up
