Characterization of Blast Effects on Surrounding Soil: Internal Detonations in Underground Pipes

Abstract:

Article Preview

Preliminary results from a series of blast tests within a buried pipeline are reported. The paper is mainly focused on the characterization of the site, providing an insight into the effects of different basting events in terms of soil mechanical parameters. The blasts have been monitored by means of accelerometers embedded in the ground and placed on the ground surface. The recorded acceleration time histories show a strong attenuation as the wave travels away from the source.
