Numerical Analysis of Water Mist Flow Field for Gas Explosion Suppression in Upper Corner
The water mist is an economical and environmental agent for gas explosion suppression. It can be applied in the commonly gas concentration zones and the gas accumulation zones which is difficult to reduce the concentration of methane gas. By numerical analysis, this paper studies the effect of the direction and the number of the nozzles, and the distance form the nozzles to the wall at X direction in upper corner in coal mine. For gas explosion suppression in upper corner, it can use one nozzle which direction is same as the wind and the distance is 2m.
