VUMA-network is an interactive network simulation programme developed to assist mine-ventilation engineers and practitioners to plan, design, operate and control the ventilation and cooling systems of underground mines.
Allows for the simultaneous simulation of:
Air thermodynamic behaviour
Heat, cooling and refrigeration
Gases (including radon and DPM)
Heat loads, cooling and refrigeration
The comparison of different simulations to see the knock-on effect of any changes in input parameters.
Clearance and tracking of contaminants
Determine blast clearance time
Considers combustion effects of fire on the network, i.e. ventilation flow turnaround.
Simulates the success of possible firefighting scenarios
Simulates whether existing fire control measures are adequate e.g. doors installed to control a conveyor belt fire
Escape Route Planning
Allows for safe travel distance planning from working areas to refuge chambers
Planning and design
Fault finding and troubleshooting
What-if scenario analyses
Dust and/or gas tracing
Refrigeration cooling system design
Verifying environmental performance
Coal Module Integrated into VUMA-network
Functions similarly to VUMA-network but, has been developed to satisfy the specific needs of a coal mine.
Used for the simulation of steady-state environmental conditions encountered in underground coal mines.
Controls airflow and pollutant [dust, gas, smoke, etc.] distributions interactively throughout a coal mine-ventilation circuit.
Accurately represents coal-mine layouts as well as mining methods.
