Summary 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, and detonation behavior of commercial and military explosives, and systems for charging explosives into drillholes.

Functional descriptions of all current detonators and initiation systems are provided. The book includes chapters on flyrock, toxic fumes, the safety of explosives, and even explosives applied in metal working as a fine art. Fundamental in its approach, the text is based on the practical industrial experience of its authors. It is supported by an abundance of tables, diagrams, and figures.

This combined textbook and handbook provides students, practitioners, and researchers in mining, mechanical, building construction, geological, and petroleum engineering with a source from which to gain a thorough understanding of the constructive use of explosives.

December, — Google Scholar Lysmer, J. US Symp. Rock is not a homogeneous material. There are fracture planes, seams, and changes in burden to be considered. Wave propagation is faster in hard rock than in soft rock. Initial blast designs used idealized assumptions. Because of these facts, it must always be understood that the theoretical blast design is only the starting point for blasting operations in the field. A trial blast should always be performed.

It will either validate the initial assumptions or provide the information needed for final blast design. The most critical dimension in blast design is the burden distance B m expressed as: 1. B is the distance to the free face in an excavation, whether a quarry situation or a highway cut. Rocks will be thrown for excessive distances from the face when the burden distance is insufficient.

To function properly, the stemming material must lock into the borehole. Stemming distance is expressed as: 2. Ideally, values for k and a are generally derived from blast vibration monitoring at a site and define a line that represents a relationship between PPV and weight of explosives for those conditions.

Rock blasting and explosives engineering

Most coredrilling equipment are designed with gear or hydraulically driven variable speed hollow-spindle rotary drill heads, [14]. Column Loading Density kg per Diameter m m column diameter 0.

Table 1 is a loading density chart which allows the engineer to easily calculate the weight of explosive required for a blast hole.

In operating a quarry and crushing plant, the drilling pattern, the amount of explosives, the size of shovel or loader used to load the stone, and the size of the primary crusher should be coordinated to assure that all stone from the quarry can be economically utilized.

When there is a large difference between the size of the feed material and the size of the crushed product, a large amount of energy is required. As stone passes through a crusher, the reduction in size may be expressed as a reduction ratio: the ratio of the crusher feed size to the product size.

Crushers are classified by their method of mechanically transmitted fracturing energy to the rock. Jaw, gyratory, and roll crushers work by applying compressive force.

The main classes of aggregate crushers include, ii. Jaw crushers iii.

Log washers Sand preparation and classification section, [1]. It is discovered that at the end of aggregate crushing and production, we are left with quarry dust which is used as admixture for cement stabilized lateritic soils. In addition, Table 1 is a good guide on the gunpowder loading density in kg per m of column diameter.

The whole idea of rock blasting is to produce aggregates for all civil engineering works. At the end of the study, aggregates of various sizes were produced as well as quarry dust which is a good admixture for cement stabilized lateritic soils.

The prevention of such accidents depends on careful planning and faithful observation of proper blasting practices. Because blasting operations may cause actual or alleged damages to buildings, structures, and other properties located in the vicinity of the blasting operations, it may be desirable to examine and possibly photograph any structures for which charges of damages may be made later, [15] and [16].

Conclusion At the end of this research work, it was concluded as follows; i. That gunpowder is a good replacement for the expensive explosives like dynamite, ANFO and slurries in terms of production simplicity and handling.

Consequently, gunpowder used as an explosive during the blasting of rocks is very cost effective. In addition, gunpowder releases considerable energy and shock wave needed blast and break any kind of rocks, iii. That the production of aggregates is very essential to the development of Nigeria as developing nation because of her developmental project targeted at the millennium developmental goals MDGs for and the use of quarry dust that seems to be a waste product from aggregate production in a quarry site as an admixture in both the production of concrete and in cement stabilized lateritic soils, iv.

Gunpowder is a very cheap explosive that could reduce the cost of aggregates.
