Abstract [en]

This report comprises the recommendations given in the earlier parts of the project.

Based upon the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the individual parts of the GRUVAN project, the following recommendations were picked out as the most significant:

-          Full scale fire experiments with respect to vehicle fires should be performed, resulting in heat release rate curves.

-          Further studies and experiments should take place that vary additional parameters besides the distance between the individual fuel objects.

-          The heat release rate curves of design fires involving all common vehicles should possibly be reconstructed using the potential theoretical methodology.

-          The results from the full scale fire experiments should be compared with the corresponding results from one- or two-dimensional calculation models as well as three-dimensional CFD calculation models.

-          The use of a CFD model together with a ventilation network simulation program should be further investigated. The results should be compared with corresponding fire experiments.

-          Further studies of the applied mine ventilation network simulation program should be performed.

-          Non-flammable hydraulic fluids are strongly recommended for use in underground mines.

-          The lack of fire barriers should be investigated further and alternative methods should be looked into.

-          During the work in the project it has been shown that the fire behaviour in loader cabs can be very rapid and have a large impact. Thus it is recommended that automatic extinguishing systems are installed in loader cabs that are manned.

-          The research has shown that the time space for smoke spread during a large fire in an underground mine is larger than the minimum demand on the air supply in refuge chambers. Thus it is recommended that the minimum demand is revised and increased.
