Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

Anatoly D. Alexeev
March 30, 2017

Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch...

Minerals and Coal Process Calculations

D.V. Subba Rao
December 05, 2016

The aim of process calculations is to evaluate the performance of minerals and coal processing operations in terms of efficiency of the operation, grade of the final products and recovery of the required constituents. To meet these requirements, in-depth detailed calculations are illustrated in...
