Blasting is considered as the most common technique for rock breakage in surface mines, tunneling and large infrastructural development projects. Ground vibration, as one of the most adverse effects induced by blasting operations, can cause substantial damage to structures in the nearby environment. Therefore, there is a need to make accurate predictions of blast-induced ground vibration for minimizing the environmental effects. The present paper explores the possibility of using the genetic… CONTINUE READING
