Abstract:

Since 1969, research has been directed toward the development of both chemical and nuclear explosive excavation design techniques and engineering procedures which can be used on a wider range of civil engineering excavation projects. Flexibility and adaptability in design procedures, engineering practicability, and cost competitiveness with conventional excavation methods are the guidelines for the current research effort.
