Abstract
Friction factor determination is necessary to model the ventilation system in an underground mine. These parameters were obtained by means of in situ measurements in two potash mines between 2013-2015 [1-2], obtaining an adjusted model to the reality in terms of airflow distribution. In this study, the friction factors were verified by means of a CFD software. The simulation of the air behaviour inside the mine drifts was done using a multiphysical numerical model of computational fluid dynamics...
