Blast Performance Quantification and Optimization


The duration of most blasts is so short that the eye cannot detect the details of the
rock fragmentation process.  Without understanding the performance of the
explosives and the dynamics of the rock‘s response to the detonation process, blast optimization can be an expensive, trial & error process. 

Blast Dynamics, Inc. specializes in explosive and blast performance evaluation with
the use of:

Design application audits

Three-dimensional face profiling

Borehole deviation quantification

Explosive velocity of detonation measurement

High speed motion picture and digital video cameras

Specialized motion analysis software

Near and far field vibration and pressure recording

Image analysis fragmentation quantification

Excavator productivity analysis

Crushing, milling and grinding analysis

Once the performance of the explosives and blast has been quantified, the
appropriate steps can be taken to improve blast performance. This approach allows significant design refinements to be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
