Abstract
This paper summarizes current work by the federal Bureau of Mines to reexamine damage criteria for residential structures responding to ground motions created by surface blasting. The most important aspect of this work is the determination of damage thresholds through field observations of the response of residences to ground motions generated by strip mining blasts. Before and after shot observations of damage are compared with measured structural response, measured input ground motion and blast pressures, and calculated structural response. Preliminary observations on three structures will be described.
