Abstract

Developing trends in important aspects of blast vibration monitoring and control are identified through consideration of research and consulting experiences during the last 30 years. This retrospective view is written to identify strong currents in a large river of progress rather than to develop a comprehensive state of the art, which can be found in my 1996 book, Construction Vibrations. Specific case studies set the stage for the following discussion of trends. These trends in turn provide the background for a possible "out of the box" approach to increase understanding by the lay public of the low impact of vibration at the current control limits.
