MNTC 316 Ventilation and Hydraulics
This course will provide an overview of fluid mechanics in order to provide a solid foundation for mine ventilation and mine hydraulics. Students will be able to perform ventilation surveys, analyze existing ventilation networks and design new ventilation networks in accordance with mine regulations and design criteria. New technology for saving energy and reducing emissions will be explored. Mine hydraulics topics such as mine service water distribution, mine drainage and dewatering and backfill distribution will be discussed. Students will be able to perform pipe network analyses and select the appropriate pumps for these applications. Available Online .
