Ingeniería de Ventilación Subterránea

Este libro fue escrito con la intención de servir como referencia y texto para ingenieros, investigadores, maestros y estudiantes que estén interesados en la planificación y el control del entorno en aberturas en el subsuelo. A pesar de estar dirigido principalmente a las operaciones mineras subterráneas, los procedimientos de diseño de este libro también pueden aplicarse a otros desarrollos subterráneos complejos, tales como depósitos de desechos nucleares, almacenes comerciales o redes de tránsito vehicular. Por lo tanto, este libro es muy útil para los ingenieros mineros, civiles, mecánicos y de calefacción, ventilación y aire acondicionado. Los capítulos sobre los contaminantes transportados en el aire resaltan los medios de medición y control, así como las reacciones fisiológicas. Estos tópicos serán de particular interés para los higienistas industriales y los estudiantes de medicina industrial.

Al preparar esta versión actualizada del texto originalmente publicado en 1993 bajo el título de Ingeniería Ambiental y de Ventilación Subterránea, se aprovechó la oportunidad para actualizar el material que sufrió cambios significativos desde aquella primera versión. La palabra “Ambiental” fue removida del título puesto que este término está más relacionado con el medio ambiente en superficie. Muchos de los cambios importantes de este texto son los aplicados a los desarrollos en los softwares diseñados para la planificación de la ventilación y las condiciones subterráneas.

El libro sigue siendo referencia y texto para los ingenieros, investigadores y educadores, así como para los estudiantes universitarios que tienen especial interés en la planificación y control del ambiente en minas subterráneas u otras aberturas de similar condición. Por tanto, el reforzamiento teórico de esos temas se trata con detalle.

Si bien este libro incluye aspectos técnicos de tópicos tales como levantamientos de ventilación o el uso de software de diseño, no está específicamente dirigido a ser un manual para el responsable de la ventilación. Tales manuales están mejor preparados por los respectivos países o instituciones quienes incluyen metodologías, condiciones y legislaciones locales.

El Dr. McPherson falleció en noviembre del 2008. El personal de Mine Ventilation Services preparó está segunda versión impresa del libro en su memoria.

 
 

Subsurface Ventilation Engineering

This book has been written as a reference and text for engineers, researchers, teachers and students who have an interest in the planning and control of the environment in underground openings. While directed primarily toward underground mining operations, the design procedures are also applicable to other complex developments of subsurface space such as nuclear waste repositories, commercial accommodation or vehicular networks. The book will, therefore, be useful for mining, civil, mechanical, and heating, ventilating and air-conditioning engineers involved in such enterprises. The chapters on airborne pollutants highlight means of measurement and control as well as physiological reaction. These topics will be of particular interest to industrial hygienists and students of industrial medicine.

In preparing this updated version of the textbook originally published in 1993 and under the title of Subsurface Ventilation and Environmental Engineering, the opportunity has been taken to update material that has seen significant change since the first version was written. The word ‘Environmental’ has been removed from the title as this term has increasingly come to refer to the surface environment. Several of the major changes are particularly applicable to developments in software that have taken place for planning the ventilation and condition of the underground environment.

The book remains a reference and text for professional engineers, researchers and teachers as well as for undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in the planning and control of the environment in underground mines or other subsurface openings. Accordingly, the theoretical underpinnings of the subject are dealt with in some detail.

While the practical techniques of topics such as ventilation surveys or the use of computer software are included, this text is not intended specifically to be a ventilation officer’s handbook. Such handbooks are best prepared within individual countries or institutions to reflect local methodologies, conditions and legislation.

Dr. McPherson passed away in November, 2008.  The staff of Mine Ventilation Services prepared this printed second version of the textbook in Dr. McPherson’s memory.

12th U.S./North American Mine Ventilation Symposium

This volume documents the technical papers presented at the Twelfth U.S./North American Mine Ventilation Symposium. The U.S. Mine Ventilation Symposium series was established in 1982 by the Underground Ventilation Committee of the Society of Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration, Inc. The symposium was expanded in 2002 to include North America and has become one of the preeminent events for the advancement of Mine Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Underground Environmental Engineering. Although primarily focused on issues related to the mining and tunneling industries in North America, the event continues to attract professionals from around the world.

The Twelfth U.S. North American Mine Ventilation Symposium, held in Reno, Nevada June 9th to 11th, 2008, includes papers on Ventilation Planning, Heat and Humidity, Mine Dusts, Mine Fires, Tunnel Ventilation, Numerical Analysis, Coal Mine Methane, and Spontaneous Combustion. The symposium designated ventilation issues related to the 2006 Miner’s Act and Diesel Emissions Control as topics of special interest.

Participants in the 2008 Symposium were also presented with the opportunity to participate in several workshops covering the topics of Psychrometry and Climate, Dust Control, Heat Illness, Diesel Particulate Matter and Gases and Egress and Entrapment in mines as well as site visits to operating mines.

This book will be of special interest to Mine and Tunnel Ventilation Professionals, Instructors and Researchers in the field of subsurface ventilation, monitoring and control.
