FRACTURE CONTROL IN TUNNEL BLASTING
disadvantages of presplitting also apply to postsplitting. In smooth blasting where a face is available, the holes are drilled on centers sufficiently close to ensure inter cepting radial cracks along the specified fracture plane with cushioned charges. As control is obtained by spac ing the holes, delays can be used and the ground shock

Limiting Blast-induced Damage On Final Pit Walls | Agg-Net
TRIM BLASTING. The two areas that have the greatest impact on blast damage to the final wall are pre-splitting and trim blasting. Very often pre-splitting is not carried out in quarries, partly because of the cost, but mostly because the smaller-diameter holes and charges that are used in quarries tend not to be as damaging as larger-diameter ...
ITEM 208 ROCK BLASTING
Controlled blasting techniques include presplitting, cushion (trim) blasting, and sliver cut blasting. If the designed cut slope is steeper than 1:1 and deeper than 5 feet (1.5 m), use controlled blasting techniques, even if the main excavation is ripped or excavated. In rare instances, the Department will specify presplitting for 1 to 1 slopes.

This result demonstrates that the field application effect is …
Theory and Practice of Air-Deck Blasting in Mines and ...
· The mechanism by which the explosive energy is transferred to the surrounding rock mass is changed in air-deck blasting. It allows the explosive energy to act repeatedly in pulses on the surrounding rock mass rather than instantly as in the case of concentrated charge blasting. The air-deck acts as a regulator, which first stores energy and then releases it in separate pulses.
A method of smooth wall rock blasting is provided in which an alignment of boreholes for explosive charging is drilled into rock and a single, smaller diameter empty borehole is drilled close and parallel to, and on each side of each charged borehole. Upon detonation of the charged boreholes, the rock is cracked smoothly along the plane coincident with the axes of the holes.
