Abstract [en]

The crack patterns from contour blasting in Ø48-mm holes with Orica/Dyno Nobel SSE 0.35, 0.5 or 0.9 kg/m string emulsion charges in the Bårarp gneiss quarry have been studied, using both Nonel and electronic detonators. Some 24 blocks from behind half-casts were sawn and the cracks mapped. The crack lengths caused by simultaneously initiated SSE 0.35 kg/m or packaged Ø17 mm Dynotex 1 were practically the same. SSE 0.5 kg/m gave a roughly 50% increase in length. Nonel initiation resulted in longer cracks, as did water-filled holes. Nonel also gave a rougher remaining rock surface and frequently undetonated charges were found on the muck-pile. Earlier damage zone data were used to develop a suggested addendum to the present Swedish damage zone table. The use of simultaneously initiated decoupled light contour charges (q < 0.6 kg DxM/m) in dry holes has a damage suppressing effect compared to normal pyrotechnic initiation
