Abstract [en]

This paper will discuss a suggested methodology and data collection carried out within the EU-project SLIM    (Sustainable Low Impact solution for exploitation of small Mineral deposits based on advanced rock blasting and environmental technologies). The field work took place during 2017 at a test site near Stockholm, Sweden. This paper suggest a method measure the detonation front curvature and the velocity of detonation of explosives. The purpose for this is to increase the understanding of the detonation properties of emulsion explosives as used in many blasting operations around the world. In this study, the key parameters of the performance of the emulsion explosive are its non-ideal detonation front curvature and its velocity of detonation (VOD). The charge diameters have been varied Ø25mm up to Ø65 mm i.e. from nearly critical diameters for a steady detonation up to diameters used in mining/quarrying and tunneling. The suggested methodology also introduce a heavy and thick walled mortar as a confiner for the explosive. This to simulate similar conditions as in blasting in rock. Additional to the proposed methodology and set-up, a scheme to analyze and evaluate the measurements is also proposed.

Abstract [en]

In March 2003, level ice with a thickness of 59 cm was sampled from an ice floe close to the lighthouse Norströmsgrund. Large pressure ridges were surrounding the floe, which had a diameter of about 60 meters. A total of 12 large ice cores with a diameter of 200 mm were drilled out along two rows, with an equidistance of two metres in the central part of the floe. The cores were put into plastic bags and were then directly transported with helicopter to the laboratory at Luleå University of Technology. Horizontal samples with a diameter of 70 mm were drilled from the large vertical cores at the depths 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 cm. Uniaxial compression tests on these samples were performed with three different nominal strain rates (0.5, 1, 2 x 10 -3 s-1) and three different temperatures (-1, -4, -10°C).
