Development of a computer-based risk assessment tool for underground coal mines
Başayar Büyükkara, Fatma Nur; Karpuz, Celal; Department of Mining Engineering (2016)
Underground coal mining remains one of the world’s most hazardous occupations. There are numerous hazards in a mine, such as gas, dust, noise, temperature, and high humidity. Besides, increasing number of occupational accidents in underground coal mines shows the importance of occupational health and safety in these workplaces. By means of Occupational Health and Safety Law No 6331, attention to health and safety in the workplace has grown in recent years in Turkey. In addition, conducting an occupational h...
Analysis and modelling for risk management for underground coal mines’ safety
Eratak, Özlem Deniz; Karpuz, Celal; Department of Mining Engineering (2014)
Safety in underground coal mining has become an important issue because of increasing number of accidents. There are many different hazards may cause these accidents and the most efficient method for coping with risks is the use of risk management techniques. In this thesis, accident data including workday losses, age of the injured, organ affected by accident, season, shift and reason of the accident was collected from TKI mines (ELI- Soma Eynez and GLI Tuncbilek) and TTK mines. Those variables were initia...
Monitoring and statistical modelling of dust concentration of some Turkish lignites under laboratory conditions
Karakaş, Ahmet; Güyagüler, Tevfik; Department of Mining Engineering (2010)
Although technological developments enable maximum safety, high dust formation is still a crucial problem in coal mining sector. This study is aimed to investigate the relationship between amount of coal dust produced during cutting operation and some important coal properties together with cutting parameters for different particle size ranges in laboratory conditions. For this purpose, six Turkish lignite samples were used in the experiments. Two experiment sets were designed to generate coal dust by using...
Hydrogeological characterization of the Alpu coal mine exploration site in Eskişehir-Turkey
Çatak, Mert Onursal; Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Department of Geological Engineering (2016)
The purpose of the study is to characterize the hydrogeological conditions at the Alpu Coal Mine Exploration Site which is located in the Eskisehir Province in Turkey. This is required to provide baseline hydrogeological information before environmental impact assessment of the planned mining operations can be done. The characterization studies included hydrogeological and hydrochemical analysis of groundwater and surface water. The spatial and temporal variations in groundwater levels are determined by mea...
