Research Institute of Ventilation and Fire Prevention

Director: Wang Deming

Members: Li Zenghua, Zhou Fubao, Qin Botao, Zhong Xiaoxing, Ren Wanxing, Yang Yongliang, Wang Yanming


As early as 1952, Mine Ventilation and Safety Research Team was established in the department of Coal Mining at the Beijing Institute of Mining Technology. Led by Prof. Huang Yuanping and Prof. Wang Xingshen, the research related to the theory and technique of mine ventilation and balanced-pressure fire prevention and control was carried out. In the 1980s, Prof. Zhao Yihui, Prof. Zhang Huichen, Prof. Di Zhiqian joined the team and became its backbones. During this period, the team has made a number of highly innovative results, featuring “controlling fire by wind” in this discipline of CUMT, and laid the foundation for China’s mining safety discipline. The Mine Ventilation Professional Committee of China Coal Safety Association has always been a branch of this team.


Since the 1990s, led by Prof. Wang Deming, Prof. Li Zenghua, Prof. Zhou Fubao, Prof. Qin Botao became the new generation of backbones in the team and the team has entered a new stage of development. It has established a more perfect ventilation experimental system, developed a pulsating ventilation machine and main ventilation machine operating conditions on-line monitoring and performance measuring device, put forward the reliability evaluation index system of mine ventilation system, developed the mine ventilation system reliability evaluation software, established a coal spontaneous combustion characteristics research system, proposed the oxidation kinetic determination method of the coal spontaneous combustion tendency and a three-phase foam fire extinguishing technologies and thickening mortar fire prevention and control technology for prevention of coal spontaneous combustion. All these theories, techniques and methods have been widely used in the country, effectively curbed the occurrence of major accidents in coal mines and made significant social and economic benefits. It has also spawned a distinctive, innovative team with remarkable achievements in the area of coal mine safety.
