Paper Title:
Blast Wave Effect on Apparatus and Propagation Laws in Dry Sand in Geotechnical Centrifuge Model Tests
  Abstract

7 geotechnical centrifuge model tests for buried explosion in dry sand were investigated by using 450 g-t geotechnical centrifuge apparatus. Blast wave effect on apparatus and propagation laws in dry sand were studied under the conditions of different explosive charges and different centrifuge acceleration levels. 11 accelerometers were buried around the explosives for recording the acceleration response in sand. Other 1 accelerometer was installed on the centrifuge arm to monitor blast wave effect on centrifuge apparatus. The results demonstrate that: The effect of blast wave on centrifuge apparatus can be ignored. The peak acceleration is a power increasing function of the acceleration level. An empirical relation of exponent can be found between the proportional peak acceleration and the proportional distance.
