One of the prime tasks of a mining engineer is to calculate the mine cooling load necessary for mine air conditioning system, which must provide suitable working conditions for the work force primarily at the working faces. Additionally the determination of thermal parameters of rocks plays an important role in the activities of geothermal energy production, energy storage and radioactive waste disposal. These activities require the determination of thermal conductivity coefficient of rocks… CONTINUE READING
