Abstract: The study described in this paper gathered available information from several areas of technology and summarized them in one paper. The paper describes some of the existing concepts on initiation and propagation of seismic waves, a summary of experimental data and the empirical relations that have been derived from these data for soil movement as a function of soil type, blast size, and distance from the blast. An attempt was then made to use this information, using conservative assumptions, to provide some guidelines for field decisions if no experimental data exist. Recommendations are given for the type of measurements that could be made if field measurements are possible.
