Vibration Control During the Construction of an In-Pit Lime Kiln
A blast monitoring program was conducted at Chemical Lime Company's new lime calcining facility near Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. The purpose was to develop blasting criteria for the construction and operation of the lime plant within the quarry operated by Tower Rock Stone. Further, it was imperative to accommodate production requirements into the blasting criteria. The major concern was the effect of blasting on the curing of green concrete during the construction of the storage silos and kiln stacks. In addition to discussing the susceptibility of curing concrete to blast vibrations, the article also details how this varies with time.
