Abstract

The Bureau of Mines arranged to have a wood-frame test house built in the path of an advancing surface coal mine so it could investigate the effects of repeated blasting over a 2-yr period. Later, the house was shaken mechanically to produce fatigue cracking. Failure strain characteristics of construction materials were evaluated as a basis for comparing strains induced by blasting and shaker loading to those induced by weather and household activities.
