International Journal of Mining and Mineral Engineering (IJMME), Vol. 3, No. 2, 2011

Abstract: MFIRE, a mine fire simulation program, is a very useful tool for fire prevention planning, fire control, and training in underground mines. However, all of its fire source models are stationary, which are incapable of simulating a moving fire such as a conveyor belt fire. In this paper, a moving fire source model which can be used to represent a conveyor belt fire is defined and incorporated into the MFIRE program for the first time. An illustrative case study has demonstrated that the upgraded MFIRE is capable of simulating a moving fire.
