The code is not intended to replace national laws or regulations or accepted standards.

Analysis of blasting damage in adjacent mining excavations

 · Analysis of blasting vibration revealed that support integrity is not compromised unless there is a geological structure to act as a failure plane. The peak particle velocity (PPV) rarely exceeded 250 mm/s with a frequency larger than 50 Hz. As expected blasting more competent rock resulted in higher PPVs.

Assessment of backbreak due to blasting operation in

 · One of the major problems related to blasting operations in open pit mines is the formation of cracks on the benches behind the last row of blast holes (backbreak). Prediction of backbreak plays an important role in the safety of open pit mining and the reduction of the detrimental effects resulting from blasting operations. In this study we have tried to develop predictive models for
