Air Decks in Surface Blasting Operations
In this study, the best possible location for an air deck in an explosive column during a surface blasting operation for the most efficient rock fragmentation is described. Volumes of air decks are proposed for the optimization. This study aims at helping guide blasting engineers to easily apply an air deck in a surface blasting operation.
