AbstractIn previous work it has been shown that the particle velocity of basement walls is the most useful indicator of the onset of damage due to blasting operations. An attempt was also made to measure strains the walls under study, but there were not enough results available at that time to provide a satisfactory correlation between strain and the other quantities being studied. The object of the work described here was to obtain more information on the relation between the peak particle velocity, the peak particle acceleration and the maximum strain in the walls of a rectangular tank, in order to learn more about the type of deformations developed during blasting vibrations.
