High Speed Video Applications for Surface Blast Design
During the short duration of an explosive blast, many events occur which are too quick to be detected or observed in detail with the naked eye or by normal photographic techniques. Through the use of "hightech", high speed video, many of these events can be observed, instantly played back and recorded for later use. The use of a Spin Physics SP 2000 Motion Analysis System at a blast casting operation is presented. The system was used for a variety of tasks including, but not limited to the determination of delay accuracy to within 0.5 ms, the velocity and trajectory of the faces during blasts and pinpointing geological problem areas.
