Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blasting principles for open pit mining deals with both the engineering and the scientific aspects of blasting with special application to open pit mining. Blasting principles has been divided into two volumes. Volume 1 entitled Principles of blast design is intended to introduce the reader to the basic engineering concepts and building blocks which make up a blast design. It consist of ten chapters: 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; Perimeter blasting. Volume 2 entitled Theoretical foundations is intended to provide the reader additional depth and breadth for better understanding some of the fundamental concepts involved in rock blasting. It consists of 11 chapters: 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; Selected Russian contributions.

Book News Annotation:

In this two-volume text and reference, Hustrulid (Colorado School of Mines) presents articles describing the principles involved in hard rock blasting as applied to surface excavations in general and open pit mines in particular. Volume I (General Design Concepts) introduces the basic engineering concepts and building blocks that make up a blast design. Volume II (Theoretical Foundations) provides additional depth and breadth for better understanding of some of the fundamental concepts so that engineers can improve not only their blast operations, but also their ability to understand the content and potential application of blasting papers appearing in the technical literature.

Synopsis:

Deals with both the engineering and the scientific aspects of blasting, with special application to open pit mining. Volume 1 introduces the reader to the basic engineering concepts and building blocks which make up a blast design. Volume 2 provides additional depth and breadth for a better understanding of some of the fundamental concepts involved in rock blasting.

Synopsis:

Divided into two volumes, this accessible work describes the principles involved in hard rock blasting as applied to open pit mines. A large number of examples illustrate the application of the principles. The first volume introduces basic engineering concepts and the building blocks that make up a blast design. The second volume goes into more depth to provide a better understanding of the fundamental concepts involved in rock blasting. Both volumes provide a basis for engineers to improve their blasting operations and their understanding of blasting papers that appear in technical literature.
