Technical Measures on Decreasing Harm to Slope Stability in Chamber Blasting


Article Preview

The harm to slope stability caused by blasting is a potential problem in construction of highway, railway, mine and other engineering. Compared with other blasting technology, the harm to slope stability caused by chamber blasting is often much serious. So, more and more people begin realize and investigate it. On the basis of blasting theory and practice, several technical measures on decreasing harm to slope stability in chamber blasting are put forward.
