Application and Illustrative Examples
This chapter deals with coding the software program with the Visual Basic language. The computer program named “CCMER” (C omprehensive C onsultation M odel for E xplosion R isk in Mine Atmosphere) which is capable of all the analysing models mentioned in the previous chapters to provide a tool of predicting the gas species change trends and tracking of the explosibility of mine atmosphere at any time points has been developed. Case studies are also given to illustrate the applications of “CCMER”, the developed computer program.
