Experiment Study on Air-Deck Divided Decoupling Charge in the Subway Construction


Article Preview

At present, smooth blasting are widely used in urban subway excavation. To improve smooth blasting effect in the blasting excavation process of urban subway, this paper took the fourteen section of Qingdao subway as the background, confirmed the reasonable interval of surrounding holes by combining the theoretical calculation and the actual scene; improved the smooth blasting effect obviously by changing the charge structure of periphery holes. The results of the experiment showed that adopted air-deck divided decoupling charge, when interval of surrounding holes was 350mm, and the minimum burden was 500mm, the smooth blasting effect was better, and the half eye tracking rate was beyond 85%, which meet the design requirements. The experiments proved that when adopted air-deck divided decoupling charge, the blasting effect was better than adopted concentrated charge, so there will be some reference value to the later engineering.
