Detonics and performance of explosives in rock
Objective: Use the explosive optimally by controlling the energy-transmission from explosive to rock
Optimal fragmentation in blasting
Objective: Validate and improve earlier blast design curves for quarries.
Model for benchblasting and primary crushers in open pits
Objective: Design blasting in different geologies in the Aitik copper mine, so that the throughput in the mill increases.
Controlled breakage in sub-level caving
Objective: Improve the ore exchange in the sub-level by blasts of good fragmentation of the ore with small deviations between the blasts
Blast damage in drifting and tunneling
Objective: Minimize the blast damage in the remaining rock
Environmental effects due to blasting
Objective: Minimize the environmental effects due to detonation failure, operation and handling
