Particles Gradation Optimization of Blasting Rockfill Based on Fractal Theory
Based on fractal theory, used the index of rockfill compaction characteristics(granularity fractal dimension) which conforms to Talbot curve distribution, combined with blasting schemes and rolling test data of several domestic rockfill dams, the relationship is established between compacted rockfill’s dry density and rock blasting parameters by rockfill granularity fractal dimension and its average diameter, and that provided the basis for rockfill particle grading optimization method. The method is applied by rockfill of JIANGPINGHE dam under construction, and the results show that this method can well reflect the intrinsic relation between rock blasting and rockfill compaction, which can be applied to particle grading design of rockfill dam.
