Abstract:

This report describes preliminary design investigations for a reusable large scale underground dynamic airblast simulator. It also describes dynamic measurements of rock displacement and passive measurements of residual rock deformation which were made during two explosively loaded tunnel response tests at Little Skull Mountain, Nevada Test Site. Correlations between theoretical finite element analyses and active measurements are also described.
