SPLITTING AND PRESPLITTING OF ROCK WITH EXPLOSIVES ...

The splitting and presplitting of rocks consist in creating a crack along a rock wall by means of simultaneous blasting operations in blast-holes with a light charge. These techniques have been extensively used for the last few years in the construction of large-scale rock cuttings.

PRESPLITTING ROCK IN THE PRESENCE OF A STATIC

2014-4-2  Presplitting is the creation in solid rock of a fracture plane with pre­ determined direction and extent by the proper use of explosives and drill holes. The method of presplitting, as developed by D. K, Holmes and refined by others (2),3 consists of drilling a series of 2- to 3-inch-diameter holes

2013-10-26  Controlled blasting techniques are used to control overbreak and to aid in the stability of the remaining rock formation. The less competent the rock mass itself, the more care has to be taken in avoiding damage. Presplitting is one of the most common methods which is used in many open pit minings and surface blast designs.

Presplitting excavation technique Britannica

met by the technique of presplitting, developed in the United States in the late 1950s. Basically, this technique consists of creating a continuous crack (or presplit) at a desired finished excavation line by initially firing a line of closely spaced, lightly loaded holes drilled there. Next, the interior rock mass

Empty holes have been successfully applied to rock presplitting for unloading, blasting excavation of rock drift, and gas extraction from gas-rich coalbeds [6–8]. There have been extensive studies on investigating the mechanism of the dynamic behavior for blasting crack propagation as well as the tension crack and guiding role of empty holes, which are mainly based on experimental and theoretical analysis.

2019-5-24  Rock blasting as a practice dates back many centuries and general rules were developed from experience. Rock blasting as a science, however, is fairly new. One of the goals to understanding rock blasting better is to limit the extent of damage in the remaining rock mass. The two techniques investigated are presplitting and smooth blasting

The previously calibrated numerical model is used to simulate the blasting process. The rock mass behaviours and the raising mechanisms are examined. It is shown that after the introduction of long-hole presplitting, the overbreak and freezing are greatly relieved, and the direction of advance and timing pattern are vitally responsible for the ...
