Item description for Modern Trends in Tunnelling and Blast Design by John Johansen & C.F. Mathiesen...
The book will be a valuable reference for engineers, consultants and contractors that design blasts for underground civil excavations. The authors review modern blasting techniques used in tunneling, chamber excavations and lake-tap blasting. The approach is very practical and it is based on many years of hand-on experience. Geological considerations, cut design and smooth blasting techniques with respect to tunnel and chamber blasting are also covered in the book. In addition it includes many calculations and case history examples. Several very detailed and interesting examples outlining the design consideration and techniques used in blasting lake-tap plugs for hydroelectric projects are included. The book is designed to serve as a standard book of reference for tunnel works and is well suited as a compendium for a course in tunnel blasting technique.
