The Rock Manual iv CIRIA C Summary In CIRIA/CUR produced the Manual on the use of rock in coastal and shoreline engineering, commonly referred to as “The Rock Manual” (CIRIA, ).CUR/RWS updated the book in to include the use of rock in dams, fluvial engineering and construction (CUR, ). blasting cap when unconfined; and Blasting agent (BA) = a mixture consisting of a fuel and oxidizer, intended for blasting but otherwise not an explosive (cannot be detonated with a No. 8 blasting cap). The makeup of a standard-test No. 8 cap, of the sort used as a detonator in the blasting industry, is shown to the right.

Hard Rock Miner’s Handbook is a work of the heart. Jack—whose 40+ year career spanned engineering, construction, and operation of mining projects worldwide—conceived of and wrote the first edition of the. Handbook, published in June , to assist miners and engineers in the difficult world of hard rock mining. of distribution of broken rock after blasting. Ground vibration Ground movement caused by the stress waves emanating from a blast. Initiation The act of detonating explosives by any means. Line drilling A method of overbreak control which uses a series of closely spaced holes that are not charged. Loading density The weight of explosives. This collection of publications is the single official repository for official Engineering Regulations (ERs), Engineering Circulars (ECs), Engineering Manuals (EMs) and other official public documents originating from Headquarters U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. BLAST DESIGN Introduction This chapter is an introduction to blasting techniques based primarily on the Explosives and Blasting Procedures Manual (Dick et al., ) and the Blaster’s Handbook (E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., Inc., ). Blast design is not a precise science. Because of widely varying properties of rock, geologic structure.

Rock Blasting and Explosives Engineering covers the practical engineering aspects of many different kinds of rock blasting. It includes a thorough analysis of the cost of the entire process of tunneling by drilling and blasting in comparison with full-face boring. Also covered are the fundamental sciences of rock mass and material strength, the thermal decomposition, burning, shock initiation Reviews: 1.
