6/1/2008 - Conference papersThe paper provides: (a) a description of the gas pressure-based design approach to blasting, (b) a simple technique for estimating the damage radius of the buffer row of holes, and (c) a discussion of smoothwall design for the contour row of holes.
2/1/2005 - Conference papersThis paper examines the factors related to injuries due to inadequate blasting shelters and blast area security, and identifies mitigation techniques.
2/1/2005 - Conference papersDescribes a small-scale field study to identify key factors that may contribute to the migration of CO through the ground.
3/1/2010 - Conference papersThe authors' goal is to summarize the totality of the USBM's explosives and blasting research.
1/1/2008 - Conference papersNIOSH researchers collected basic data from two blast rounds at the SSX-Steer Mine as a component of a larger study on controlled blasting, the goal of which is to reduce injuries from falling rocks in underground mines.
1/1/2008 - Conference papersThis paper presents a modification which corrects the mathematical error in the Holmberg-Persson approach to perimeter blast design.
1/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper reviews the potential hazards from toxic fumes produced by detonating explosives in surface mining and construction operations. Techniques to protect workers and the public from the hazards of explosive-related toxic fumes are discussed.
Discusses several flyrock injury incidents at surface mines and construction sites and describes some injury mitigation techniques.
This paper discusses elements of a stray gas investigation and the analyses necessary to identify the source of a stray gas.
A general overview of the blasting and CO monitoring of a highway construction project is presented and discussed. The use and effectiveness of residential type CO monitors and multi-gas monitors are discussed.
