Blasting Principles for Open Pit Mining

Description:

Blasting Principles for Open Pit Mining covers both the engineering and the scientific aspects of blasting, with special attention to open pit mining. It serves as both a textbook and a reference for practicing mining, civil, and construction engineers involved in surface rock excavation. Blasting Principles has been divided into two volumes.

Volume 1: General Design Concepts covers basic engineering concepts that make up a blast design. Chapters include a historical perspective; the fragmentation system concept; explosives as a source of fragmentation energy; preliminary blast design guidelines; drilling patterns and hole sequencing; drop cut design; bulk blasting agents; initiation systems; ground motion, air blast and flyrock; and perimeter blasting.

Volume 2: Theoretical Foundations provides additional depth and understanding. Chapters include fundamentals of explosives; blasting in the absence of a free face; the effect of the shock wave; attenuation; spherical charges; cylindrical charges; decoupling; heave; Livingston crater theory; hydrodynamic-based models; and selected Russian contributions.
