AbstractThe results are presented or controlled blasting tests on a total or six buildings on two different soils. Damage was corre­ lated, with size of charge and distance, and with displacement, velocity, accelera­ tion, settlement, and strain measurements in the buildings. Peak velocity appears to provide the best correlation with damage for all soil conditions.
