Airblast-overpressure levels from confined underground production blasts by James J. Olson Download PDF EPUB FB2
The Bureau of Mines recorded and analyzed overpressure levels for three production blasts at the White Pine Copper Mine, upper Michigan, to obtain representative data from single-heading blasts in a long, straight haulageway and to estimate the damage potential inherent in production blasts fired in close proximity to underground structures.
Airblast-overpressure levels from confined underground production blasts / By James J. Olson, joint author. Larry R. Fletcher, Twin Cities Mining. fined or poorly confined blasts that were dominated by acoustic energy in the audible range (20Hz to 20 kHz) and that could be measured by standard com mercial sound measuring systems.
InSiskind and Summers (32) surveyed airblast noise from conventional quarry blasting, using instruments with a. At each of the sites, an airblast overpressure microphone was positioned approximately 1m above ground level. Blast data used for modelling The blast data used for establishing site laws is based on the measurements of ground vibration and airblast overpressure taken on three days.
The informationAuthor: Cedric Roberts. The stress on a structure from a dB overpressure produced by a blast is roughly equivalent to the stress produced by a 25 mph wind. The wind isn’t as noticeable as the air overpressure due to its slow rate of pressure Airblast-overpressure levels from confined underground production blasts book and the correspondingly minor or nonexistent rattling.
Airblast - since For more than 40 years Airblast has been the world leader in providing blasting and painting solutions to the anticorrosion industries. With an unparalleled network of offices around the world Airblast works closely with our customers and distribution partners providing tried and tested equipment as well as developing.
Air Vibration Predictor helps in assessing Air vibration levels in the area surrounding the blast. The predictors support and improve compliance with blasting related planning conditions and contribute to improve blast performance and blast design.
The basic characteristics of the shots (the powder factor is not available for blasts in quarry A and is not given), the predicted peak overpressure and the relative prediction errors calculated with Eq.

The absolute value of these errors is ranged from % to %, with mean of %.Cited by: Understanding Blast Vibration and Airblast, their Causes, and their Damage Potential Author: Wesley L.

During detonation the hot gases that are produced expand in. Theory of blast waves shows that all other blast wave parameters are can be expressed as functions of overpressure.
Formulas below are for blast wave in air at standard ambient conditions: Velocity of shock front (in m/sec, overpressure dP is in atm): Velocity of gas behind shock front (in m/sec, overpressure dP is in atm).

Introduction Background This Blast Management Plan (BMP) forms part of a series of Environmental Management Plans for the Vale Integra Size: 2MB. In ALOHA, an overpressure Level of Concern (LOC) is a threshold level of pressure from a blast wave, usually the pressure above which a hazard may exist.
When you run a vapor cloud explosion scenario in ALOHA, overpressure is the hazard that is modeled. (ALOHA does not model the threat from hazardous fragments. audible. Elevated airblast levels are generated when explosive energy in the form gases escape from the detonating blast holes.
Energy escapes either through the top stemming or through fractures in the rock along the face or at the ground surface. Airblast Airblast radiates outward from the blast site in all directions and can travel long. center of a blast that exceeded a peak SPL of dB.

Blast overpressure time history curves were recorded by center pressure gauge. Empirical prediction on the peak blast overpressure is based on UFC .Based on the comparison between the experimental and empirical blast pressure-time histories as shown in Fig.
it is generally concluded that empirical method can give reasonable overpressure. Figure 1: Blast wave propagation Blast Loading and Blast Effects on Structures – An Overview T.

Eight flush mount pressure sensors were used in a series of 3 test sequences to measure air overpressure produced by a firecracker.
Overpressure was recorded at a. Airblast Overpressure Although unusual, blasting generated air waves can reach a level where they can damage buildings. NYSDOL (12 NYCRR 61) specifies limits for airblast levels at buildings in the vicinity of blasting operations.
Air waves not at a level sufficient to cause damage can disturb individuals, resulting in complaints. EXPLOSIVE BLAST 4 EXPLOSIVE BLAST This chapter discusses blast effects, building damage, inju-ries, levels of protection, stand-off distance, and predicting blast effects.
Specific blast design concerns and mitigation measures are. Air Blast Overpressure Although unusual, blasting generated air waves can reach a level where they can damage buildings.
Air waves not at a level sufficient to cause damage can disturb individuals, resulting in complaints. Factors that affect air blast overpressure include topography, blast design, and atmospheric conditions.
