Paper Title:
Potential Applications of Foam Ceramics in Gas Explosion Prevention
  Abstract

Explosion suppression and isolation apparatus act as the last barrier to minimize casualties and property loss. Regrettably, the present techniques, such as water tubs and dust barriers, cannot effectively suppress multiple and continuous explosions. Being a porous medium, foam ceramics are characterized with large porosity and strong resistance against high temperature and shocks. Theoretical analysis and experimental study suggest that, due to numerous collisions with the walls in foam ceramics, the free radicals –generated in the chemical reactions of gas combustion and responsible for flame propagation, can be significantly destroyed, the reactive heat release be restrained, thus making the chemical reactions non-self-sustained. As a result, flame propagation is quenched. Furthermore, foam ceramics can markedly attenuate shock waves. Thus, if properly designed and arranged in the roadways, the material is expected to become a new-generation gas explosion suppression and isolation method in coal mines.
