In the early 1980's, the U.S. Bureau of Mines published four reports of structural response and damage from surface mine blasting, vibration monitoring, and analysis methods. These findings replaced simpler and less restrictive Bureau criteria dating back to 1962 for ground vibration and 1943 for airblast. Although these studies were done in response to industry needs, the reports

Blasting Vibrations Vibrationdamage

2022-1-3  Blasting Vibrations. Blasting is, by far, the most-studied source of ground vibration, as the potential for vibrations from blasting to damage structures was recognized far earlier than that of construction heavy equipment. There is

Human comfort evaluation criteria for blast planning

2015-3-29  Song et al. introduced a method for evaluating blasting vibration comfort and based their evaluation criteria on mechanical vibrations. The US Bureau of Mines surveyed and analyzed the effects of blasting vibration on humans and discovered complaint rates of 5 % when the peak vibration velocity was 5 mm/s and 10 % when the peak vibration

1996-12-1  As part of a review for its project report, the Bureau had to address issues on the adequacy of the safe blasting criteria and analysis procedures in its 1980 report RI 8507, Structure Response and Damage Produced by Ground Vibration From Surface Mine Blasting. Because the criteria in RI 8507 are used in assessing current blasting, key

Ground Vibration Monitoring Standards and Methodology

The Bureau of Mines studied blast-produced ground vibration from surface mining to assess its damage and annoyance potential, and to determine safe levels and appropriate measurement techniques. Direct measurements were made of ground vibration produced structure responses and damage in 76 homes for 219 production blasts.

Evaluation of ground vibration effect of blasting

2009-4-1  1.. IntroductionDrilling and blasting are the most widely adopted excavation techniques for mining and civil engineering. Rock blasting results in ground shock and vibration which may cause damage to the surrounding structures such as buildings, bridges, dams, tunnels, etc., therefore, blast-induced ground shocks and their propagation in rock mass have been drawing

Coping with Construction-Related Noise and Vibrations

2016-8-2  Bureau of mines conducted a number of studies to try to determine safe levels of vibration due to blasting. The studies suggested that minor cosmetic damage (cracking plaster etc.) could be avoided if the ground vibrations at the structure were limited to 0.5 to 2.0 inches per second. Construction projects typically adopt criteria that are
