Abstract
A primary objective of this test project was to study, under carefully controlled conditions, the effects of earthborne blast vibrations upon a residential structure. Another objective was to compare the propagation characteristics of earthborne blast vibrations, when the explosive was detonated in soil, with the extensive information already available in blasts in bedrock. The dynamic strain recordings in the interior walls confirmed that ground peak particle velocity is the best criterion of potential damage to residential structures.
