Has created the scientific foundations for the transient aero-gas-dynamic processes in the ventilation networks. Has developed the analytical and experimental methods for the determining and reducing of the aerodynamic (drag) resistance in the goafs, the methods and means for the control of the parameters of the mine atmosphere. Has explored the mechanism of the emissions of the coal, rock, gas, and proposed the series of the ways to prevent them.
