Abstract [en]

Prediction and monitoring of vibrations from rock blasting is of practical importance. Damage to rock tunnels caused by blasting is fundamentally different to that of conventional buildings. Different damage mechanisms are discussed as well as methods to monitor the development of cracks by analysis of frequency content. For the assessment of the damage potential it is essential to understand wave propagation in rock and the dynamic response of cavities to vibration excitation. Vibration frequency and wavelength in relation to the size of the cavity are important parameters. Vibration amplification of a circular tunnel to a plane wave is analyzed and guidelines given for practical design applications. Filtering the vibration signal, which is often required in national standards, car. give misleading results for tunnels in rock.
