About the Book

The need for better control of the adverse implications of blasting operations, especially blast-induced damage is of major importance. It determines the stability of excavations and has a major impact on for improving production efficiency, personnel and equipment safety and environmental concerns.A detailed experimental investigation was carried out to study blast-induced damage from small-scale blasts in a competent granodiorite rock formation. It employed small diameter boreholes (40mm) drilled to a depth of 6m. The blasts with 0.5--1.0 kg of explosive placed in the donor holes were surrounded by an array of monitor holes located at varying distances. A number of low-pressure pneumatic and high-pressure hydraulic sensors installed in receptor boreholes along with an acceleration station were used to monitor the time history of explosion pressure activity in the vicinity of the donor borehole. Interpretation of the magnitude and time history of the transmitted pressure yielded the extent of blast-induced damage. It was found that blast induced damage routinely propagated 16 blasthole diameters, and in some cases reached 29 blasthole diameters for short lengths of emulsion explosive in this rock type.
