Proper management of technical risks during blasting facilitates efficient project management and helps keeping costs and safety at an acceptable level. it is of crucial importance to incorporate the process of risk management in the design and execution of the project. Risk analyses of the environmental effect of blast-induced vibrations are, in many cases, based on crude concepts which do not take into consideration the fundamental nature of vibratory motion. Realistic modeling of wave propagation in soil and rock requires that correct dynamic parameters are considered and appropriate attenuation models are applied. It is possible to apply relatively simple vibration attenuation concepts for prediction of vibrations in soil and rock and their interaction with structures on or below the ground surface.
