Energy controlled blasting (ECB)

The concept of “Energy controlled blasting” is the precise adaptation of the explosives energy input during blasting into the rock mass with respect to the volume/mass to be blasted hole per hole over the total bench height. The concept consists of a systematic procedure based on geometrical measurements of the blast geometry, the back calculation of the amount of explosives necessary on a hole per hole basis and finally in a procedure of a charging technology (either explosives dilution or hole section blocking) to realise the precise amount of explosives charging in the hole over the whole bench height. While the concept is ready there is still some development need in the future to implement the concept into software, which allows one to automatically carry out the necessary calculations.
