Estimation of near-field peak particle velocity - a mathematical model

September 2010

  Peak particle velocity (PPV) is an important parameter in estimation of rock and structural damage. In general, ground vibration is measured using a seismograph at a distance from the blast face to keep the instrument safe. However, rock damage due to blasting occurs very close to the blast hole and thus, PPV at the damaged zone can not be measured directly. In the far-field observations charge is considered...
