Accidents related to fires and exposure to toxic gases are one of the main causes of deaths in underground mines. This type of emergency, requires the introduction of special systems and approaches to increase safety.
This paper presents a methodology for the evaluation of evacuation time, for which a model and system for predicting the inhalation effects of toxic products from a simulated hypothetical fire scenario has been developed. The results of the proposed methodology can be used to evaluate the evacuation plan, thus offering the opportunity to fully analyze the time period from the moment of beginning to the end of the fire evacuation.
The main contribution of this paper is located in its participation in the development of models and systems that will contribute to the improvement of fire evacuation plans in underground mines.
