Using mathematical modeling methods, the authors studied the temperature changes in the ventilation shaft lining and the space behind lining under an alternating thermal effect of the ventilation flow (reversing the main ventilation unit in winter). We established the pattern of the temperature conditions created in the ventilation shaft, the lining, and the host rock mass when reversing the main ventilation unit at mines in the North. Our studies have shown that, in case of emergency at the mine, which requires reversing the air flow in the coldest period of the year, it will result in a change in the temperature conditions in the ventilation shaft, the concrete lining, and the host rock mass. The extent of such effect depends on the reverse duration. Thus, at an ambient temperature of -45°C, during the first 24 hours after the reverse, we can observe complete freezing of the concrete lining at a ventilation flow rate of over 2 m/s. The rock temperature drops below 0°C and, at air flow rates of up to 10 m/s, the frozen area thickness around the shaft will be no more than 7 cm. 48 hours after the reverse, the maximum freezing depth of the rock will be 30 cm.
Key words: shaft / lining / temperature mode / ventilation / reverse
