Study of the Effects of Shearer’ Kinematic Parameters on on-Way Distribution of Dust on Coal Face
In order to research the effects of shearer’ kinematical parameters on on-way distribution of dust on coal face, according to the theory of suspension gas-solid two-phase flow and the theory of cutting dust formation, mathematical model of on-way dust concentration was established, methods of determining parameters were given, dust migration was simulated by using the discrete phase model (DPM) in FLUENT, on-way distribution regularity of dust was found. According to calculation of the quantity of cutting dust at different hauling speed and different rotational speed of drum, dust migration was simulated and migration regularity was showed as follows: dust concentration of every point on a coal face increased as hauling speed decreased or rotational speed increased. In addition, with rotational speed increased, the position of concentration maximum moved a little along downwind.
