Abstract:

Ground resistivity measurements were made at Mixed Company 3 and Middle Gust 5 test sites using the Geophysical Measurement Array method. The average electrical resistivity of the Mixed Company site was 76.7 Ohm meter. The average resistivity of the Middle Gust site was 44.7 Ohm meter. Both sites had received substantial precipitation preceding the measuremeents. The passage of the explosion produced stress wave modulated the resistivity of the sample material by 11. It is thus possible to monitor the state of stress of very large material samples in situ by monitoring their electrical resistivity. Author
